Variety Motor Mouth Camp assists kids who have limited speech and rely on a communication system/talker to express themselves.
First held in Western Australia in 2011, the camp is designed to support children who use these communication systems, often called Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) systems, and their families to attend together.
AAC is used during all activities at camp, encouraging the child and their family to fully embrace their AAC system and to incorporate it into their everyday life.
This year we’re delighted to be piloting our first Tassie Motor Mouth Camp with the Southern Support School.
This camp would not have been possible without the very generous support of the Motors Foundation.
We hope to expand the Motor Mouth Camp in 2023.
