“I’VE GOT SOMETHING TO SAY”
A lecture series presented by people who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication.
All presenters are paid for their presentations. We value their input and believe they should be paid appropriately. Attendance at these workshops ensures that we can continue to provide this opportunity to our presenters.
- Hear directly from those who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) about a range of topics, including their experiences perspectives, and topics of expertise or interest.
- Others who use AAC can meet and learn from those who are competent users of their system.
- A great opportunity for people who use AAC, their families, and service providers to network and socialise.
