About Campaign

Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) supports CPAS clients who have difficulties in communication. It is used to share ideas and feelings without talking. AAC includes unaided ways by using the body (e.g., facial expressions, gestures, sign language) and aided ways by using a device/tool (e.g., speech generating devices, communication applications on iPads, picture cards, communication boards). Everyone uses forms of AAC every day for different communication purposes. Our clients use AAC to support them to request, make choices, socialise, learn and many more!

Our Speech Therapists recommend AAC systems to clients who need them, educate caregivers and teachers on supporting clients who use AAC, and provide therapy for clients as they learn to use their device(s) to meet various communication needs.

The kind support from corporate and individual donors like yourself allows us to continue providing access to AAC equipment for more clients. This includes eye gaze systems, tablet computers, iPads and more.

Your support will help us to continue improving our therapy services and give a voice to more of our clients at CPAS.

Thank you!
