Our Mission

To build an Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) led community that engages with and supports users of AAC by cultivating community, relationships, and socialization skills. We support, empower, and connect AAC users.

We encourage positive interaction amongst individuals with complex communication needs and their local communities.

 

How we accomplish our mission:

  • Cultivate a thriving network for individuals with AAC through virtual hangouts and mentoring.

  • Model AAC usage, foster motivation, empower each other's expressive language, and hone communication skills through virtual hangouts.

  • Create a community where AAC users can ask questions, offer ideas, share real-life challenges, and successes.

  • Provide AAC users with remote mentoring that's inspiring, positive, and energizing.

  • Develop and promote strong self-advocates so they can launch their dreams and thrive in adulthood.

  • Foster an inclusive culture of people without speech, by emphasizing broad communication modalities.

Our Vision

A world that values human diversity and embraces people with complex communication needs who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) and treat AAC users with respect, dignity, and equality.
