endever* corbin is primarily non-speaking and delivers their presentation with the use of AAC.  They explain in great depth the importance of accepting that communication is not just speech.  enveder* gives a thorough insight into learning to use AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) . They meticulously explore the different types of AAC available and give lots of insights, advice and tips on how to start someone with AAC. This webinar is ideal for parents of non-speaking children, teachers and teaching assistants, Speech and Language practitioners, carers and others working with non-speaking children, teens or adults.

enveder* tells us that it is never too late to teach someone AAC and emphasises that communication is a human right. Unfortunately many non-speaking Autistic children and adults are denied this right. Some have no access at all and others have their communication limited with simplified communication methods.
