Breaking the ICE Conferences

Breaking the ICEWhat is Breaking the ICE (BTI)?

BTI hosts consumer-focused events for people who use Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC). ICE stands for Independence, Community and Empowerment. The goal is to provide individuals who use AAC opportunities to come together and learn from each other, create meaningful relationships in the community, and have a platform to share ideas and feelings.

Events are planned by the BTI Canada Conference committee, a volunteer-driven group of people who use AAC as well as professionals in the field.

Who is it for?

Youth and adults who use AAC, people who support those who use AAC, and professionals in the field of AAC are welcome to attend, observe, learn and network with the wide variety of people attending the conference.
