Expression Connection is a program of the DSCBA Educational Alliance. Through this program, we ensure that children who have communication and speech difficulty due to Down syndrome have access to Alternative and Augmentative Communication systems. It is our goal to make sure every individual is empowered and has the ability to communicate. We offer a lending library of AAC devices, consultations and training presentations. To learn more about the program, please contact Kati Skulski, M.S. CCC-SLP firstname.lastname@example.org.
