30th Anniversary Free Access Event
It has been 30 years since the founding of the Augmentative and Alternative Communication journal in 1985. To celebrate this milestone, the AAC journal editors, past and present, and publisher Taylor & Francis are providing key articles free for a period of 30 days. One article will be featured each week during the month of October 2015. These releases coincide with International AAC Awareness Month, celebrated every year in October. Two additional articles will be available in December 2015.
We are excited to announce the first featured article, now available online:
