All USSAAC stakeholder groups should prepare for disasters. This webinar focuses on actions/ resources key to disaster preparation, response, relief and recovery. We highlight a family’s perspective and discuss the importance of planning, as well as staying flexible. We also discuss long- term recovery issues and the emotional toll disasters inflict on those impacted. All people who use AAC should have access to their communication tools at all times.

Seminar objectives

  • describe relevant actions for AAC users across the disaster cycle,
  • determine appropriate strategies for long term recovery, and
  • apply disaster knowledge/skills to individual AAC users, families, and clinicians.
