General Information
Description of ServiceThis summer camp is specifically for children who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) methods. The program is designed to provide participants and their families with exciting learning experiences to build their language and communication skills in a safe, welcoming environment staffed by experts in AAC.

AAC Institute is a not-for-profit, charitable organization dedicated to effective communication for people who rely on augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).

An estimated 2.5 million Americans experience speech disability to the extent that they have significant difficulty being understood by others. Many of these people have no speech at all and also have other physical disability that precludes expressive communication using hand signs, writing, or typing.

Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) is a field of endeavor addressing the communication and other related needs of individuals who experience significant impairment in this area. The goal of AAC is generally to achieve the most effective communication possible for the individual. Aspects of this field include clinical service delivery, education, and research.
