New funding for Canadian AAC support service
A great article in Disability Insider this week in Canada describes the work that the team at Communication Assistance for Youth and Adults (CAYA) in British Columbia do to provide support for people who need AAC. It featured Curtis who uses Predictable on his iPad, which he received from CAYA.
“Curtis recently received an iPad with the Predictable communication app from CAYA… Curtis can express himself more clearly to anyone who doesn’t know him so that he can make new friends and voice his needs to new people. He can also talk about more abstract topics and express his emotions more broadly and deeply. Curtis is excited to have this tool to augment his communication with new people and to broaden his social circle via Zoom or at church.” said Ivy Pang, mother of CAYA client.
