Families are invited with their children ages 2-21 to an evening with the GWAEA Augmentative/Alternative Communication (AAC) Resource Team and speech-language pathologists. The team will review key “SMART” communication partner strategies and help families gain skills to increase their own interactions with their child while incorporating the use of the child’s AAC system.

This interactive night is intended for parents/guardians
and their children who are current “learners and/or users of AAC” to practice modeling and interacting with AAC.

Examples of AAC systems include, but are not limited, to:

  • Core Vocabulary boards
  • PODD communication books
