Publication: RESNA Conference: Atlanta, Georgia

The Demand-Pull Project on Communication Enhancement facilitates the introduction of new and innovative technology into the augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) marketplace. The Stakeholders Forum is a critical step in this Project at which important unmet customer needs and feasible technology solutions to address these needs are identified. Forum participants include manufacturers, researchers, clinicians, consumers (primary and secondary), advocates, resource providers and technology producers whose knowledge and perspectives are critical to the transfer process. The Forum is an effective means by which to validate unmet market needs and establish "requirements" for technology solutions to address these needs.
