Empowering Communication Partners with AAC in Term 3

May 14 2021 3:38 PM

 Autism SA’s Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) program has been developed specifically for communication partners, or people who support individuals who use AAC to communicate. The program, run by Anna, Bec and Autism SA’s Speech Pathology team, empowers communication partners to build their confidence in setting goals for the individuals they support and help them to implement strategies to achieve these goals.

What are the benefits of the program?
Autism SA's AAC program is an opportunity to develop your skills and get the most out of the AAC system, so that you can help the person you support to communicate and live the life they choose. The program supports in:

  • Understanding of AAC and development of skills;
  • The ability to effectively use an AAC system in the environments that a person requires support;
  • Effective guidance of what to work on next;
  • Confidence building, and capacity to model language on the AAC system;
  • Maximising the use of the AAC system to meet the goals of the person using the system to communicate; and
  • Networking with others who also support a person to use AAC to communicate.

We are thrilled that we are now able to offer this program for Semester 2 2021, to empower communication partners to help the person they support to communicate and live the life they choose. To learn more about the program, you can view the flyer here.
