Adaptive US AAC Training Reviews


I completed the AAC training with Adaptive, which I can only describe as being excellent. This is due to in part to the very supportive and informed Adaptive staff and in due to the excellent course material. The trainer is excellent and very supportive.

The Adaptive US team is very helpful and customer oriented. I aimed for the AAC certification, the trainer offered very helpful insights and was very collaborative. I found Flashcards very useful, they helped me remember the terms and the appropriate explanation. Tutorial sessions are extremely helpful, to clarify questions and doubts live with the tutor.

Marija T

Thank you Adaptive US for the AAC training I attended back in March with Tom Tomasovic as instructor. Tom was really knowledgeable and the training was very helpful, giving me a good foundation to prepare for the AAC exam. Great set of resources.
