AAC Loan Library

Help me give my students who are non-verbal have a voice to trial through an iPad with a communication app.

My Students

We have three Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) classrooms and a number of our students have limited speech. Every child is unique and should be able to express their unique thoughts, feelings and desires. We have students from Kindergarten to Fifth grade that are still developing their communication systems.

Everyone deserves a voice and to have their voice be heard!

I am hoping to help these students find their voice and exercise it quicker by fundraising for an AAC loan library.

My Project

When a student cannot use their voice to express themselves, they need an alternative way to express themselves.

Here at C., we have three Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) classrooms and a number of our students have limited speech.

I am hoping to help these students find their voice and exercise it quicker by fundraising for an AAC loan library.

This AAC loan library we hope to build would consist of an assortment of augmentative devices and assistive technology available for students to trial in order to develop more robust communication systems and to make activities more accessible.

For example, an iPad with a communication app may allow a student to say “hi” to a peer , request something they love or even to comment on an activity!)

Everyone deserves a voice and to have that voice, be heard!
