AAC activities internationally are increasing. This brief report highlights just a few of the types of activities which are evolving within the field of AAC, which may be of interest to the membership within the ASHA Division 12.
In 2002, ISAAC established a new committee to focus on international activities. The committee was charged with four broad goals, which were established under ISAAC’S Operational Plan for 2003– 2004. The purposes of these goals are to increase the membership of the international perspective of ISSAAC. The basic goals of the committee are to:
  1. Identify the potential for collaboration and/or funding with the WHO (World Health Organization);

  2. Apply for consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the UN;

  3. Promote twinning within ISAAC (i.e., to encourage collaboration between ISAAC chapters and/or members from different countries);

  4. Identify other international organizations with which ISAAC can develop partnerships in order to make ISAAC more visible as an advocacy organization.
