PANDA AAC Camp is Organized by BC Association for Advancing Communications in Collaboration with the University of British Columbia Edith Lando Virtual Learning Centre
PANDA (Promoting and Advancing) AAC Camp is designed specifically for children with disabilities whose primary mode of communication is AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication).
Our goal is to improve AAC education, communication, and literacy through training and collaborative learning with students, families, and educators. We support and encourage hands-on application for speech-generating devices.
