Connect with AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) is a group for early intervention and school aged children who are users of AAC systems.
Children attending the group may be being supported to communicate through a low-tech system (eg. a paper based communication board) or a high-tech AAC device (eg. a tablet with communication software).
Speech pathologists facilitate a number of activities within the group to support children and their families using AAC to socially interact, share information, comment, request and build short sentences with their systems. Families are supported to further extend their skills in how and when to model language on AAC systems and are offered tailored education as a group on request.
Children are required to have a parent or caregiver attend for the duration of each session.
