Children and adults are considered for an AAC system when their verbal language doesn’t meet their communication needs. This assessment is made by a qualified Speech Pathologist who can work with you to find the best mode of communication. Everyone is different, so recommendations are made with the individual on a case-by-case basis.
The term AAC refers to all alternative communication systems including paper based boards, low technology (e.g. communication books) and high technology systems (e.g. iPads, dedicated communication devices).
