Summary

A Working Party is currently developing a set of Standards to describe and measure how good AAC services are. The document will be published in January, and will be endorsed by the Communication Council and government agencies.

The Standards will:

  • inform commissioners about what is necessary in AAC Service delivery
  • inform PWUAAC about what they can expect from AAC Services
  • give AAC services a tool to measure and improve their own performance.

This session welcomes anyone who uses AAC and would like to contribute to developing these Standards.
