“As you know, we are happy for the ACE to be used widely and modified for use in other formats, such as the iPad. The guiding principle of the ACE-III is that it is free for users and we wish therefore that disseminiation in other forms, such as the tablet, also remains free.” (Sharpley Hsieh of Neuroscience Research Australia for John Hodges, to Rudolf Cardinal, 28 Oct 2012)
