New network will explore young people's communication competencies across contexts

The TransComm network brings together international experts in Linguistics, Psychology, Sociology, Education Science, and Speech and Language Science, to capture and explore scattered knowledge on the practices that sustain, develop or hamper communicative competence in interactions involving young people living with communicative disabilities.

TransComm is short for Transition and Sustainability of Communicative Competencies in Interactions Involving Young People with Communication Disabilities.

The network has a particular focus on the ways in which practices of communicative competence change as young people move between different institutional and everyday contexts, especially in interactions that involve the use of communication technologies (e.g. speech generating devices).

The TransComm network not only aims at scientific knowledge transfer but also at enhancing collaborations with practitioners from various fields (e.g. kindergardens, schools and other institutions).

The network is funded by the DFF with 958.920 DKK.

Transcomm Kick of Meeting

The first meeting of the TransComm network took place in Aalborg from March 26.-27, 2019. The organization committee met at Aalborg University and started to plan the activities of the research network for the next 3 years.
