FOUNDATIONS training comprises a set of free, on-demand modules to teach you essential foundation knowledge for implementing AAC. This is not device operational training, but comprehensive AAC education, to help you at all stages of the AAC process.

Our free ACCESS Training is a prerequisite to the Foundations modules, and will help you to better understand the content of this course. We strongly recommend completing the FOUNDATIONS courses in order, starting with Module 1. The content is designed for speech pathologists, but may be of interest to all members of the AAC team.
