PrAACtical AAC Website

This website has so much great information about Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). AAC is all the ways we share ideas or feelings without talking. People with severe speech and language difficulties may need a form of AAC to help them communicate with others.

This was taken from their website description:

“PrAACtical AAC supports a community of professionals and families who are determined to improve the communication and literacy abilities of people with significant communication difficulties. It was founded in 2011 by two SLP professors, Carole Zangari and the late Robin Parker, around a shared passion for AAC.”
