Learning how to support communicators with complex needs is a winding journey. Knowing not only where to start, but how to find your way, is key to helping kids who use AAC reach their full potential. We are here to help you find your way on your AAC journey so your communicator can find their way in the world. The field of AAC has come a very long way over the last 40 years.
