Augmentative and Alternative Communication is also commonly called "AAC". AAC can greatly enhance the life of individuals who struggle to communicate through speaking or whose speaking abilities have not yet reached their full potential. AAC comes in many forms from 'low tech' (such as printed pictures and choice boards) to 'high tech' (such as speech-generating software on a tablet, also known as "speech-generating devices").
The staff at Columbia Pediatric Therapy can help your child improve their communication using AAC or determine if AAC would be beneficial for your child.
If your child uses augmentative and/or alternative communication now or you believe your child may benefit from AAC, please reach out to schedule an evaluation with us. Our team is also able to conduct an AAC evaluation to determine which device would be the best fit for your child.
