About Campaignends 31 Mar 2023, 11:59 PM
Students with complex communication have to use various forms of Augmentative Alternative Communications (AAC) to express their needs and participate in the community. Currently, many of them carry paper-based communication systems such as PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System) files or Aided Language Displays (ALD) which have limitations. A few of the limitations of the current communication systems used by the students are the paper-based communication systems do not have a voice output and it's bulkier in terms of size, and weight, and is less portable than an iPad-based communication system.
This project aims to provide opportunities for students with complex communication needs to learn how to use an AAC (alternative and augmentative communication) device to communicate and interact with others. These students have been identified to have the capacity to learn how to use an AAC device for communication and will benefit from using a high-technology AAC device to interact with teachers, therapists, friends, and family in all environments.
To achieve this, AWWA School @ Napiri needs funding to purchase AAC devices that can be customised for students with complex communication needs and provide a greater opportunity to enhance our students' communication.
