Resume:

Formålet med AAC er at sætte kenyanske skoler i stand til at undervise børn uden sprog i metoden Alternativ Supplerende Kommunikation samt gennem dannelse og styrkelse af forældreforeninger at øge presset på skolevæsen, politikere og myndigheder m.h.p. at indføre metoden i skolen. To specialskoler udvikles til at være AAC modelskoler, hvorfra metoden kan udbredes til yderligere 4 specialskoler og 9 specialklasser i Nakuru County. Det langsigtede mål er at få AAC optaget i læseplaner for alle kenyanske specialskoler, samt at Kenya Institute for Special Education tilbyder kurser i metoden. Det springende punkt er, om Kenya Institute for Curriculum Development vælger at optage metoden i curriculum. Udover at bevare presset på myndighederne i relation til AAC ønsker forældreforeningerne også at skabe mulighed for at oprette bofællesskab(er) og beskyttede værksted(er) for unge og voksne med særlige behov i Nakuru County.
