Overview

Bringing together augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) consumers, family members and professionals, the Annual NCACA Conference continues to provide a forum for learning and sharing essential information. For individuals who experience communication challenges, the use of augmentative and alternative communication and assistive technology are often critical in facilitating independence, fostering social and emotional well-being as well as expanding and enriching activities of daily living. Thursday, February 18th, we are fortunate to have Dr. Tracy Kovach.  Friday, February 19th will consist of breakout sessions related to augmentative communication, literacy, assistive technology, family/consumer topics, vendor products and make-it-take-it workshops.
