The researcher working in the field of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) faces many challenges. Individuals with an interest in AAC research are geographically dispersed, often it is difficult to engage the participation of all of the potential stakeholders, and there are significant challenges in communicating the findings to the interested parties in an appropriate manner. In recent years, computer technology has dramatically changed the ways researchers can carry out and disseminate the results of research activities and has created the possibility of innovative collaborative practices. This article provides a description of technologies and practices that can support international and intercommunity collaboration in a variety of research-related activities.
