Samuel Sennott, Ph.D., the director of the Universal Design Lab (uLab) co-created the popular Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) app, the original Proloquo2Go for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. This AAC system has helped tens of thousands of individuals gain access to communication. This invaluable experience provided him with executive leadership, design, technology, and advocacy experience that he now brings to the new lab. Dr. Sennott sold his share in the Proloquo2Go Project to his co-creator at AssistiveWare as an early stage startup and then worked to complete his Ph.D from The Pennsylvania State University and focused on AAC, assistive technology, and special education. He recently founded the Universal Design Lab at Portland State University to create a collaborative entity originated to innovate in the areas of AAC, assistive technology, and Universal Design.
IEEETV covered the story of how Proloquo2Go was created through a partnership between Samuel Sennott and a software company from Amsterdam called Assistiveware.
