BIPOC AAC User Perspective Research Study

USSAAC is supporting a research study investigating the perspectives of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) in the AAC community, including folks who use AAC and their families. We know that there is more to do in allyship with these AAC stakeholders and we are starting with a study to explore how professionals are currently supporting them. We aim to determine the extent that the BIPOC AAC community feels represented or underrepresented related to their cultural differences within the field of AAC. By seeking direct input, this participatory action research aims to include and promote diverse voices in the field of AAC.
If you are interested in participating in this 8-week focus group from February through March, please contact by February 21st, 2022. Participants will be given a small honorarium.
If you are an SLP providing services to BIPOC users of AAC, we need your help! Please share our posts on your feed, in your stories, with your clients and their families! To learn more, email
