Feedback form is now closed.
Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems provide an avenue for students with significant speech and language difficulties to communicate in a variety of ways, including voice-output technology. The field of AAC has significantly evolved in recent years, including its impact on education and learning. Accordingly, the definition of communicative competence has also been updated. This session will address research-based examples of the skills to become an effective communicator using AAC at school and beyond!
