Communication is a human right.
ACES stands for Augmentative Communication Empowerment and Supports.
ACES is a program for young adult users (18+ years) of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) located on the main campus of Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
ACES is a two-week intensive program followed by monthly meetups and ongoing social media engagement. This summer, ACES will run from July 16 - July 28, 2023.
New for 2023!
ACES 2023 will benefit from the insights and leadership of our AAC User Consultants. These full-time AAC users are working to make ACES 2023 powerful and life-changing. We are working together to design an exciting experience.
AAC Essentials is an online learning opportunity about Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) for non-speaking Pennsylvanians served by the Office of Developmental Programs. Anyone can take these free courses and receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the course. You can also explore all the lessons without completing a course.
Consider Communication is a special project for those of us who support people with complex communication needs.
