October is Augmentative & Alternative Awareness Month

October is Augmentative & Alternative Awareness (AAC) Month and we’d like to acknowledge the hard work of GPAEA’s Assistive Technology Specialist and Team, Speech-Language Pathologists, SLPAs, and Early ACCESS teams who do so much to help make sure that kids have a way to access communication!

International AAC Awareness Month is celebrated around the world each October. The goal is to raise awareness of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and to inform the public about the many different ways in which people communicate using communication devices.

International AAC Awareness Month was established by ISAAC’s LEAD Project Committee in October 2007. Thirteen countries participated in the first Awareness Month, and events have been increasing in number and scope ever since.

Again, thank you for the work that you do!
