Communication is Everything: How Augmentative Alternative Communication Devices (AAC) can Help!

There are some people who require augmentative alternative communication (AAC) to communicate. They often have difficulties in producing any speech physically and need AAC support to express their needs, wants, thoughts, and feelings. Some people who may rely on AAC are born with conditions that make producing speech difficult, while others may have experienced a stroke or brain injury at an older age that affected their speech skills. This is often where speech-language pathologists come in! Speech language pathologists can help clients find an appropriate device and train them to use it effectively. Read on for more information on AAC devices, including why they're important and how to utilize this accommodation.
