Augmentative/Alternative Communication Support
Communication Assistance for Youth and Adults (CAYA)
Community Agency
CAYA began as a special project of SET-BC in July 2005 to address the needs of young adults with severe communication disabilities as they were leaving the education systems
"Communication Assistance for Youth and Adults (CAYA) is a Provincial Resource Program that supports adults aged 19 years and older who require an augmentative/alternative communication (AAC) system due to a severe communication disability, i.e. speech that is not functional for daily communication. The goal of CAYA is to ensure that eligible individuals have access to the communication tools and professional support to enable them to create an adult life to the best of their abilities."
