AAC Workshop


Event Details

AAC Workshop.  I can help my child have something to say
  • Augmentative and Alternative Communication – What is it?
  • I have been told that my child needs an AAC system?
  • Why hasn’t anyone ever talked to me about this?
  • ​Won’t using signs and pictures stop my child learning to talk?
  • We tried and AAC failed – should I try again?
  • How can I make it work well?
Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) can be used to help children who have difficulties with speaking to communicate. Your child’s speech pathologist may suggest an AAC system if your child’s speech is slow to develop or non-existent or to enhance existing speech. It includes a range of methods such as visuals, signs and computer technologies.​

This workshop is ideal for families who want to know:

  • ​How to support their child to communicate if they are having real difficulties learning to talk?
  • When and where to start with an AAC system?
  • How to know what system to use?
This will be a practical session that will introduce you to different systems such as PODD, Proloquo2go and Key Word Sign and answer your individual questions.​
