What is AAC?

Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) includes all forms of communication (other than oral speech) that are used to express thoughts, needs, wants, and ideas. We all use AAC when we make facial expressions or gestures, use symbols or pictures, or write
   ASHA (American Speech-Language and Hearing Association)

"I finally feel supported; that I’m on the right track and have 1000 more

ideas for improving communication in AAC users."

 

TESTIMONIALS

"I liked the idea of learning from each other, to see and be motivated by others. I no longer feel separate or isolated, but part of a big group/family!"

Mission Statement The purpose of the Indiana AAC Summit is to bring people together from across the state for networking, sharing  resources, celebrating successes  and working through  challenges  in order to provide high-quality AAC services for individuals with complex communication needs.

"There is a real sense of camaraderie among attendees.  When I feel that I have yet so much to learn, I feel only support and inspiration from not only the presenters, but also the attendees."

"Our presenters  were wonderful. Well-versed and passionate about AAC. "
