Augmentative and Alternative Communication
Those with significant speech or language disorders may require alternate ways of communicating. These systems can be as simple and intuitive as using a notebook to communicate, as quick as pulling out a small picture or symbol to indicate a need, or as comprehensive as a communication device with voice output capabilities. A person with communication needs may use AAC to support their existing communication, or they may need AAC for all of their communication needs.
There are many types of augmentative and alternative communication systems, and our Speech Pathologists can help develop systems to help your child be the best communicator possible.
