AAC Voice Halloween Picnic
This year AAC Voice marked AAC Awareness Month by hosting a Halloween themed picnic on the 31st October at the Kokoda Memorial Track picnic area in Rhodes.
We really appreciated the people who were new to AAC Voice, especially those who use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), who came.
People used a range of low tech and high tech AAC. We also had a variety of AAC methods demonstrated on the day. These included PODD communication systems, Liberator communication devices and Key Word Sign NSW.
There were witches and fairies. The picnic area was decorated in true Halloween style with Halloween balloons, tablecloths and even a pumpkin!
The greatest thing about this year’s event was the diversity of the people who came. There were people who used AAC, speech pathologists, owner and chef from a nearby pizza restaurant, an audiologist, a teacher, a GP and a social worker. We really did raise awareness of AAC
