USSAAC (United States Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication) has a new campaign called “Amplifying AAC Voices,” designed to provide people who rely on AAC more opportunities to be heard. The initial initiative involves the creation of an online “AAC Speaker Connection,” a web portal that facilitates the matchmaking between AAC speakers and those that wish to engage them as paid speakers for a wide variety of purposes. If you know of any adults who use AAC and enjoy public speaking that would like to join USSAAC’s AAC Speaker Connection, please encourage them to sign up at  You can also FIND a speaker at this site.
