The CAMA 2024 Virtual Conference is the online place to be! Join the fun on Saturday, May 11 for this interactive experience to learn and explore augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).

PRC-Saltillo is pleased to participate in this fourth annual event open to anyone interested in AAC. Our mission aligns strongly with what CAMA stands for: Communication Always Matters All Ways. Learn from AAC professionals and communicators. Explore AAC technology, access methods, resources, and so much more.

Whether you’re a speech-language pathologist, occupational therapist, educator, paraprofessional, caregiver, parent, friend, or someone who uses AAC, CAMA is a great space to take your AAC knowledge and advocacy even further. Your contribution to the conversation has extensive impact! And you can learn from home!
