Dr. Liz Klonoff on 5-Day Rule
Last month I updated you on some of the changes that were occurring at the Office of Research as we realign some of our functions to provide better customer service to the university community, operate more effectively and march forward toward achieving our Collective Impact strategic goals.
The FAAST Center at UCF is both a regional assistive technology demonstration center and a site for research and teaching funded by National Institutes of Health.
The center provides services to increase awareness, access and acquisition of assistive technology for individuals living in Central Florida and nearby counties. Current research focuses on the use of iPads with communication apps by young children with speech impairments to learn sentence building skills ― and the center is recruiting 3-, 4- and 5-year-old participants.
