International activities (BUILD)

BUILD is a committee that focuses on the work of the AAC Emerging Countries, finding practical ways  to offer them support.  The BUILD AAC Project supports the development of services in emerging AAC countries, by

  • Forming collaborative partnerships to encourage ISAAC membership from emerging AAC countries,
  • Coordinating funding for people from emerging AAC countries to attend ISAAC biennial conferences,
  • Distributing information relating to its discussion topics by electronic and other forms of communication.

At each biennial conference, the BUILD Committee hosts a meeting that brings people together to network, support and learn from each other.

In the following video, former BUILD Chair Sarah Yong talks about what BUILD is, and what it means to her.

For information on programs that support ISAAC membership for individuals from emerging AAC countries, see Individual Members.
