Augmentative & Alternative Communication (AAC) Clinic
Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) is the use of communication technology to enhance speech or provide an alternative means of communication when speech is not possible or functional.
AAC also includes the use of computerized devices to assist with written communication when manual handwriting is not possible or functional, regardless of whether or not the person can speak.
The delivery of AAC services involves a specialized interdisciplinary team that provides assessment, prescription, equipment trial, ADP funding authorization and training for AAC devices.
The team consists of a Speech-Language Pathologist, a Communicative Disorders Assistant, an Occupational Therapist, and Technologists. These disciplines collaborate with the client throughout assessment and intervention.
