The North Carolina Augmentative Communication Association (NCACA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing information and support to nonspeaking individuals, their families and the professionals that serve them. NCACA was started over 30 years ago by individuals in North Carolina that felt there was a need for people to come together and support one another in teaching and understanding alternative forms of communication.
NCACA also serves as the point of contact and expertise for AAC policy issues in our state. Our members are active in sharing AAC information through workshops, presentations, and seminars to national and state professional associations. We are also a source for continuing education, research projects, university lectures, and assistive technology trials for the people of North Carolina.
