Augmentative and Alternative Communication

Augmentative and Alternative Communication

Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Devices and tools help children communicate when they are unable to do so on their own. There are a number of reasons why children may need an AAC Device either temporarily or permanently:

1) Brain trauma

2) Stroke

3) Birth defect

4) Neurological disorder

5) Other speech or oral motor disorders

There are many different types of communication devices ranging from low tech picture cards / PECS to special computers. In fact, if your child is unable to use the touchscreen, speech generating devices (SGDs) offer flexible access options including:

1) Eye-gaze

2) Head tracking

3) Joystick and alternative mouse control

4) Single and multiple switch control
