Bruce Baker, the originator of Minspeak, passed away peacefully last night at his Pittsburgh home. Bruce invested heavily in the development of AAC throughout Australia over many years.
He toured the country on several occasions & generously brought out some of the biggest international names in the field. Bruce's contribution to improving the options available to non-verbal people will remain immense. His dedication to assisting people combating all sorts of disadvantages was total.
Bruce's insight into the discipline of linguistics allowed him to develop the unique approach to representing language that became semantic compaction. Over time this evolved into the Unity & Words For Life vocabularies. This incredible legacy represents Bruce's parting gift.
