What is AAC? | Webinar | 14/05/2020

AAC stands for Augmentative & Alternative Communication and involves the use of multiple strategies to support communication.  AAC may be used as an alternative to speech or as an addition to ‘augment’ or enhance the person’s existing speech.

In this webinar we will explore:

  • How to support AAC

This webinar is recommended for parents and carers of children with Autism aged 0 to 18 years

How Does a Webinar Work?

Our live webinars are presented using Zoom software which is supported on most computers, laptops, and mobile devices. This allows participants to log in remotely – perfect for regional families or those who are unable to attend our face to face workshops! Zoom also allows participants to interact with other attendees and the presenters using the virtual chat features.

If you have any questions regarding our webinars or the Zoom software, please get in touch at seminars@autism.org.au
