ICE West Testimonials
“I want to show people that no matter their difficulties in communicating, it's worth the effort to be able to communicate your thoughts to the world.”
ICE West participant, Rand
“ICE West was a great opportunity to make some new connections. I really liked the theme of Making Friends and Connections through using our augmentative speech devices. It was interesting to hear what others had to say about their experiences. It was fun for my friend and I to travel together to Vancouver, stay overnight in a hotel, and have a blast before the conference!”
ICE West participant, Whitney
ICE West ia a collaborative project kindly supported, organized and coordinated by Aroga, Bridges Canada, CAYA (Communication and Assistance for Youth and Adults BC), DynaVox, March of Dimes Canada and people who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication.
