In a 12-week study a symbol-based e-mail client was implemented for children using augmentative and alternative communication (n = 12). Quantitative and qualitative aspects of the e-mails were analyzed. In total, 231 e-mails were sent. The e-mails were analysed post hoc into eight descriptive topic categories, with social etiquette being the dominating category. The results are discussed in relation to Theory of Mind understanding. E-mailing enhanced the social network of the children and gave them a new social arena.
