Resumo

Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) is a strategy to deal with communication deficiencies. Such deficiencies are presented in people with Intellectual Disability (ID). AAC exploits more than one communication channel to send messages, however it cannot ensure that communication happens. In this paper we develop a prototype of collaborative system to support the communication of people with ID. We employ Design Science Research (DSR) and Participatory Design (PD) to tackle the problem. PD is used in the three design cycles of DSR, which are: knowledge about the user; adaptation of a communication model; and development of screens prototypes. The results are requirements related to communication of people with ID.
