Description of the project
A.A.C.cessible Culture is working to enhance the existing AAC strategies with a new model to help children and young people with communication deficits enjoy and participate in cultural and artistic heritage. The main objectives are to make cultural and artistic works accessible for everyone, to implement AAC models in the museum sector, and to improve professional skills.
Target groups of this project:
Since communication is a reciprocal process that requires at least two subjects, the AAC interventions address not only students with serious communication difficulties but also their fundamental communication partners: schoolmates and teachers, educators, family.
The project team seek to build an AAC model expressly dedicated to allowing the use of cultural and artistic heritage, even to students with communication deficits, in order to favour their development and autonomy, enhance the emotional, relational, and cultural dimensions that art and culture, in general, provides.
