Inclusion Ireland Seminar: ‘Communication as a human right: Having your voice heard through Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC)’
Wednesday, 19 October 2022, 10.00am – 1.00pm
Spencer Hotel, Dublin

Not everyone communicates using speech; we want to celebrate the ways in which people communicate through their gestures, signs, eyes and technology.

Join Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) users, experts and policy makers as we explore the pathway to ensuring everyone’s communication is valued and everyone gets the support they need to access their rights.

The seminar will be led by people who use AAC to communicate.

Opening address will be given by Ms Anne Rabbitte T.D., Minister for Disability.

We are pleased to be joined by Bernard O’Regan, Head of Disability Operations at the HSE and John Kearney, CEO of the National Council for Special Education.

This seminar is brought to you in collaboration with The Irish Association of Speech and Language Therapists.
