My area of expertise is in technology integration into language intervention for people with developmental disabilities. My current research interest is the use of questions by people who use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems. I am also interested in exploring the use of technology to help teenagers with developmental disabilities participate in required readings as part of the general education curriculum.
