Why is PRC charging for the AAC Language Lab when it used to be free?
The AAC Language Lab was launched in August 2009 and has been a very popular web resource for language development. In order to expand on this valuable resource and offer more content and choices to a wider range of audiences, we are charging an annual subscription fee of $84.00 (only $7.00 per month).
This minimal fee will provide the resources to continue to develop, maintain and update the Lab and keep it current by offering cutting-edge materials that both promote language development and support success. Subscribers benefit from complete access to the site including monthly resource updates, mobile lesson plans, and more.
What do I get for my $84 subscription?

For an annual fee of only 84.00 ($7.00 per month), you have a valuable resource at your fingertips anywhere, anytime to help your client, student or child learn language with easy-to-understand lesson plans and fun-filled activities.
