AAC Awareness

Each October is International AAC Awareness Month. 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 AAC.

USSAAC invites you to celebrate with us and help increase awareness. We hope the content on this page will facilitate your efforts to celebrate, educate, and spread the word in your community, not just in October, but all year.
