It is finally October and you know what that means…it is AAC Awareness month!
On behalf of USSAAC, we want to wish you a Happy AAC Awareness month.
USSAAC’s campaign for this year is Amplifying AAC Voices Campaign. As part of this campaign, the AAC Speaker Connection has been established. This is a web-based portal that enables individuals, institutions, corporations, media, and others to find and engage individuals who use AAC as invited speakers for their classroom, organization, clinic, workshop, conference or other . For more information, please view the AAC Speaker Connection Launch video. If you are someone who uses AAC, or know someone who is interested in being, or, know of a speaker, please visit https://speaker.ussaac.org/ for future opportunities.
To support our Amplifying AAC Voices Campaign, we will also be hosting a virtual Silent Auction. This auction is designed to involve the broader community within and beyond USSAAC members and to fund the costs of establishing and maintaining the AAC Speaker Connection. The auction will open on October 1 and run through October 15!
Please register through this link https://bit.ly/2021auctionlogin to be able to see the exciting catalog of items – guest webinars, artwork by AAC users and helpers, conference registrations, parent guides, vacation getaways, equipped iPads, autographed books by AAC users and AAC experts, and more!
A very special thanks goes out to the donors who have graciously taken the time and efforts to provide the goods and services for the silent auction!

Happy AAC Awareness Month!
