What is AAC?

Augmentative and Alternative Communiction

Everyone has the right to be heard. Augmentative and alternative communication systems provide a voice for those who can’t speak, or can’t be easily understood. 

We focus on supporting those who use aided AAC systems and the people who help them. Aided AAC systems include both print-based aids and electronic devices.  

People

Who’s involved?

People who use AAC receive support from a wide range of people, all of whom are welcome to be part of the London AAC CEN family. Our members come from a diverse range of backgrounds and each brings new ideas and new ways of working from their profressional and personal experiences.
