This toolkit was developed by the Disaster Relief Committee of the United States Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication (USSAAC). This toolkit is being offered at no cost, thanks to the generous donations from USSAAC members and friends. In addition to phone/text access, those with International numbers can receive these materials through WhatsApp.
When disaster strikes, we want you to be ready!
