Welcome to the Communication Assistance Course

Before you begin the lessons, you may want to check out the CDAC team members who will be guiding you through the course.

You will also find a Help button in the menu where you can ask questions about the content of the course or report any technical difficulties you may be experiencing.

There are over 1,100 people taking this course.  Should you experience a slowness in the transition of slides and videos, it may be due to the volume of users at that time.  If that occurs, we suggest that you may want to return to the site at another time.

We hope you will enjoy it and get useful information that you can use when assisting a person communicating with others.
