Why Volunteer?

This is a valuable opportunity to gain knowledge and experience in the area of Augmentative and Alternative Communication, attending an international conference, and understanding the impact AAC has on clients, families and the international community. You will be provided a t-shirt and a certificate of recognition for your resume, and you will receive meals/snacks while volunteering. Best of all, you will receive free registration for one day if you volunteer for a minimum of three days.
