Get Ready. Get Set...

Get ready, AAC lovers, AAC Awareness Month is coming!
One of the most wonderful things about the AAC community is the pervasive sense of sharing and giving. When we told some of the people we know that PrAACtical AAC was planning a giveaway for AAC Awareness Month, they responded with an overwhelming level of generosity.

So far, we have books, switches, software, apps, a low tech SGD, subscriptions, and more to give away from some of the companies whose logos are appear in his collage and more.

We’ll be sharing more information about how to enter to win some fabulous AAC-related goodies, but we’ll give you one big hint. Get ready to take some pictures. If you’re the competitive type, you’ll want to snap some shots of your AAC Awareness work and get comfortable uploading them because this will give you a big boost. 

If photography is not your thing, don’t worry. There will be plenty of other ways to get a piece of the action. Stay tuned. 

In the meantime, get ready to spread the word about what AAC is, who can benefit, and how to better implement it. We’ve started you off with some suggestions here: 50 PrAACtical Things to Do In Celebration of AAC Awareness Month.

It is less than 3 minutes long but contains good information and illustrations that children can relate to. A switch and AAC device are featured. I hope you find this helpful!
