AAC Camp Alberta

 


Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) is a set of tools and strategies that can help people who are unable to rely on verbal speech to communicate. AAC systems may include gestures or signs, picture/word boards, mobile devices with communication apps, and/or speech generating communication devices.

AAC Camp Alberta is a weekend family camp for children aged 6 - 19 years who use robust multimodal AAC systems and their families to enjoy fun camp activities while they practice social communication.
