What’s better than parents and professionals who are knowledgeable about beginning to use AAC with children? Connecting with them on Facebook.

Here are some of the most active AAC-related groups out there.Five Facebook Groups for Families of Beginning Communicators

1. Speak for Yourself Users Group (Despite it’s name, this one is not limited to families/professionals who use SFY.)

2. AAC: Alternative Awesome Communicators

3. Angelman, Literacy, and Education (Despite the name, the content is very applicable to a broad range of developmental disabilities.)

4. Apraxia-Kids (not AAC-specific but lots of good information)

5. PrAACtical AAC (Okay, we’re biased!)

    Hi Carole,

    I always appreciate the information you post. Unfortunately the link to Speak for Yourself Users Group seems to be broken .

    It was lovely meeting you in Lisbon.

      Hi Dot! Thanks for letting me know-I really appreciate it! I just updated and tested it. Seems to be working now. So nice to meet you in person at ISAAC!

  • Hello Carole,

    I’m glad to see #3. I’m the mom of an Angel and I rarely see things posted for those with AS. I’ve followed the link to find it on Facebook. Thanks for the resource.

      Sabrina, thanks so much for the feedback. It’s so important for the SLPs who serve kids with Angelman’s Syndrome to know how to connect families with other families and professionals who are knowledeable about the communication journey in AS. The wisdome, support, and resources in that group are amazing. You won’t be disappointed!
