About AAC Awareness Month

International AAC Awareness Month was established by ISAAC’s LEAD Project Committee in October 2007. Thirteen countries participated in the first Awareness Month and events have been increasing in number and scope ever since.

Today, International AAC Awareness Month is celebrated around the world each October. The goal is to raise awareness of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) and to inform the public about the many different ways in which people communicate using communication devices.  

Activities vary from country to country. Awareness days and social events, such as morning or afternoon teas and open houses, help create a sense of community. International events, such as published collections of stories, videos and songs, are other exciting ways that people have come together in past years promote AAC awareness.


“Vibes of AAC: Check it Out!” is the theme for AAC Awareness Month 2024.

This is a lecture about AAC Awareness in Orthodox Cathedral in Cairo. Participants are people working in the field of special needs. We had lecture about means of communication including tangibles, pictures, pictogram, sign language and how to apply AAC with nonverbal students, AAC programs. They found that AAC is suitable for the students they work with. Then workshop about making AAC schedule,  communication boards, books, stories. It was so exciting for them to study this new topic. We had interesting time. –  Dr.Yvette Abdelmalek, Speech and AAC Consultant
