Call For Papers



The AGOSCI Conference theme for 2017 is “Ready, Set, AACtion”.

The conference theme reflects our need to be ready for the arrival of the National Disability Insurance Scheme and the effects this will have on the lives of children and adults with little or no speech. “Ready, Set, AACtion” will showcase the best products and services, the latest research and the most inclusive communication practices for people with little or no speech.

The conference is an opportunity for people who use AAC, their families, friends, work colleagues, and people who work within the area of Augmentative and Alternative Communication to come together to share their knowledge and skills. The AGOSCI conference attracts people of all ages and from different sectors of the community.

The four themes of the conference highlight our readiness, preparedness and willingness to act as the NDIS rolls out across Australia. These four themes will guide the content of the conference:

Living with an acquired communication disability
Readiness for work, play and life
Set for successful outcomes for communication and inclusion
Inclusive mealtimes


The conference will encourage papers that explore these themes and connections.
