Non-speaking, VERY verbal

Danny Whitty

Communication is a human right and it’s crucial that we learn about communication options and how to support AAC users in advocating for their rights to education, healthcare, relationships, social activities and work. Please find a signposting list below which will grow over time. Happy Learning!

AAC stands for Augmentative and Alternative Communication, which are ways people use to communicate besides talking (verbal speech)

Examples of AAC include

  • Facial expressions
  • Body posture
  • Gestures
  • Manual signs
  • Eye Gaze
  • Aided modes such as with tablets, iPads, communication boards, picture books

A Growing List

I’m just getting started and wondering who else to add? There are so many awesome people out there and sometimes I might accidentally miss someone or an organisation off. Who else would you add?

An image with a beige background and with red and orange hued rainbows. There is a cartoon character of Laura in the bottom left corner from the shoulders up. Laura has red-blonde hair to their shoulders, wearing blue rimmed glasses, a blue top and smiling. A light blue thought bubble says 'AAC Signposting'
