AAC Family/Caregiver Breakfast Playdate
We had a great turn out for our first Family/Caregiver Breakfast Playdate. The parents and kids had a fantastic time spending time together and learning about each other's communication systems while having a delicious breakfast and watching the planes take-off and land. The WayPoint Cafe was wonderful and very accommodating as well for such a large group! We look forward to more of these events in the future!
AAC Family Swim Night
Our first family swim night at Daland Swim School in Thousand Oaks was a great success! We had a few regulars attend as well as a new family interested in learning more about AAC. Floating low-tech communication boards were provided which were a great communication tool as well as a great way to raise awareness about AAC!
Art Trek in Newbury Park
The Art Trek event was so much fun! Everyone had a great time and was able to tap into their creative side! The AVD AAC Parent Group looks forward to future events at Art Trek. Thank you so much to Art Trek of Newbury Park for a wonderful time!

Water Play in the Park
The second social event this year was held at a park in Camarillo. Fun water toys were brought for the families to play with which was a good thing since it was HOT that day. Families also brought picnic lunches to enjoy in the shade. Families with kids who used AAC attended as well as families interested in learning more about AAC attended. It was a small event but everyone had a great time!
Easter Egg Hunt
The Ventura County AAC Family Group is led by Linda Kroenke the Parent Liaison for A Voice Discovered. The first Social Event of the year was an Easter Egg Hunt at the home of a local family on March 26th. It was a lot of fun with an egg hunt, egg dying using whipped cream (yum!) and lots of delicious snacks provided by a local family!
