Purpose of the Communication Center: The CALIF Communication Center was put into operation to provide access to equipment, tools, ways of connecting, and better communication for people with disabilities.

Communities Actively Living Independent & Free's (CALIF) story is a piece of the overall and continuing story of the Disability Rights Movement in Los Angeles. The founders of CALIF not only come from a very diverse group of people with disabilities and ethnic backgrounds but also from different Disability Rights Activist groups like ADAPT, Californians for Disability Rights, California Network of Mental Health Clients, Special Services for Groups and AARP.

Those attending will have the opportunity to try DynaVox devices, learn about the funding process, and meet and network with clinicians in the field, families, and supporters of AAC and AT.
