The AAC Day Out Program is back this July School Holidays!

We are excited to bring back the AAC Day Out, offering kids and teenagers the opportunity to enhance their communications skills through the functional use of their alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) system. 

The AAC Day Out provides a motivating, enjoyable and social group environment for participants to model and observe the use of AAC devices in different scenarios and environments. Kids and teens develop specific skills training for the AAC user and their communication partners in a group setting.

What does this program involve?

  • Activities include baking, gardening and games.
  • The last day of the program will be held out in the community where participants will have the opportunity to apply their AAC skills outside of the therapy environment.
