UCF ECHO: AAC for Adults
UCF School of Communication Sciences and Disorders
Project ECHO® is a guided practice model that exponentially increases the capacity of healthcare workers to incorporate best practices into their clinical work.
Using a hub-and-spoke model, subject matter experts conduct synchronous virtual learning sessions that include sharing critical knowledge, as well as community-based problem solving of real-world case studies.
DID YOU KNOW? In August of 2022, only 6% of Florida speech-language pathologists that treat adults on the ASHA ProFind tool list themselves as having expertise in augmentative and alternative communication (AAC)?
Using the Project ECHO model, this project is seeking to expand the community of providers that will support adults who require AAC for some or all of their communication. There is no fee to participate and ASHA CEU’s are provided to speech-language pathologists at no cost. This project has been generously funded by the WITH Foundation.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has identified insufficient access to trained professionals as leading to inappropriate technology, leading to the risk for abandonment of AT, and possibly harm to the user (WHO, 2018).
