HOW CAN I HELP
Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC)
Does your child need alternative communication methods to supplement or replace speech or writing? Does your child have difficulty using or comprehending spoken or written language?
AAC includes all forms of communication (other than oral speech) to help people with disabilities communicate with others. This could be in the forms of pictures symbols, communication books, communication devices and computers, the use of gestures and even Makaton sign language.
There are many different options, so a Speech Therapy assessment will help you determine the most suitable method(s).
