Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) is the term used to describe various methods of communication that can ‘add-on’ to speech and are used to get around problems with ordinary speech. AAC includes simple systems such as pictures, gestures and pointing, as well as more complex techniques involving powerful computer technology.'
----- Communication Matters.

We are a group of people who are involved in AAC, getting together as a Special Interest Group (SIG) to share information about effective practices and current issues, and advise policy making organisations.

Meetings are held three times a year and both members and non members are welcome to attend.
