Breaking the ICE conference is a consumer-centered conference aimed at helping people who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) systems to develop their lives to the best of their abilities.

This conference is designed to bring the community of people who use AAC together to share ideas, learn from each other, and create new friendships.


Who Should Attend:
  • People who rely on AAC
  • Friends and family of people who rely on AAC
  • Parents of young people using AAC
  • Teachers
  • Clinicians
  • Community Workers
  • Students in graduate studies
Goals of Breaking the ICE Conference:

  • Provide a forum to discuss issues of importance to people who use AAC
  • Promote awareness of AAC and the interests of people who use AAC
  • Provide an opportunity for people who use AAC to network with other people of similar experiences - as a way of reducing the feeelings of isolation that people who use AAC often describe
