Purpose: This project will pilot and evaluate the development and implementation of an online and moderated chat room for professionals within Ontario's judicial and disability sectors, who are unaware of the barriers and communication requirements within a legal and court context for victims who must use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices. The moderated chat room will be used to inform, provide guidance and engage participants such as the police, judges and legal aid clinics, administrators of disability organizations, advocates and victims with communication disabilities, as well as provide an opportunity for information sharing between these sectors. Monthly chats, moderated by a transdisciplinary team, will be evaluated for common themes, questions and issues with the intent of expanding the chat room to a national level in a second phase.
