Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) refers to strategies and techniques used by individuals who experience difficulties with communication because they have little or no functional speech. AAC can augment speech or it can provide a replacement for spoken communication. In addition, AAC can also support the development of language and natural speech.
The main aim of the course is to provide individuals with psychology, computing, industry, teaching or clinical-care backgrounds, a tailored research training that will allow them to become more efficient and effective scientist-practitioners in AAC.
You should hold, or expect to hold, a first or second class honours degree in Psychology or another degree that includes a substantial Psychology component.
