Welcome to the international AAC conference:

8th Eastern and Central European Regional Augmentative and Alternative Communication Conference

Let's Talk Together - AAC in Europe

Warsaw, 2011, June 30th – July 2nd

Augmentative and alternative communication has a long tradition in Europe. Some countries started to provide services to people with complex communication needs more than 30 years ago. Others joined much later. They have been constantly learning from each other.

In 1997 Hungarians invited European emerging AAC countries to attend the 1st Eastern and Central European Regional Augmentative and Alternative Communication Conference. In this way a tradition of biennial meetings was established. These conferences have encouraged participating countries to develop AAC and provided a unique opportunity for sharing ideas and providing mutual support. So far meetings were held in the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary and Russia. The 2011 conference will be again held in Poland.

Dear AAC users, families, friends, therapists, teachers and researchers! We would like to invite you all to Warsaw, the capital of Poland, to attend the 8th Eastern and Central European Regional Augmentative and Alternative Communication Conference. As the united Europe becomes more and more integrated, we hope to see representatives of all - emerging and developed - European countries. Let's talk together about AAC, share our experience and learn from one another.

Keynote speakers:

  • Erna Alant - the President of ISAAC
  • Stephen von Tetzchner - Norway
  • Darryl Sellwood - Australia
  • All participants are cordially invited to join the festive celebration of the Polish Evening. We will show you the most beautiful places in Warsaw. Make the most of this unique opportunity to have a good time and make new friends.
