Our team of speech & language therapists are experts in the field of Augmentative and Alternative Communication. We specialize in helping children learn and use AAC systems when verbal communication is limited.
Augmentative and Alternative Communication, commonly referred to as simply AAC, refers to other forms of
communication besides talking. Augmentative communication means something is used to add to someone’s
speech. Alternative communication is where something is used to communicate instead of speech.
AAC can have many forms. For example, it could refer to communication methods such as pointing, writing, gestures, and facial expressions. High-tech augmentative communication options include using a speech-generating device, in which a computer provides the "voice" or using an app on an iPad or tablet to communicate. Sometimes AAC is only a temporary solution and sometimes it is more long-term.
If your child is struggling to communicate verbally, an AAC solution may be the right choice. Our team of speech & language therapists have years of experience helping children learn how to properly use all forms of AAC.
We know that learning to use an AAC device can be a real gamechanger for your child, and we're here and ready to make it happen. Give us a call today or click below to get started.get started today
When we received a personal reference to the Achieve Center, I had no idea it would be so great! There is experience, education, and hard work. My son could not have a better therapist and support for all that it takes to work with him.
I personally have experienced the growth and achievement that my son has done with the caring people at the Achieve Center! Wonderful people, great staff, and the caring touch a parent can count on!
The Achieve Center has made a huge difference in the outcome and success of my son. He looks forward to attending therapy every week and loves to see his therapist. It’s nice to have all his therapy together and they work around our schedule. The Achieve Center is the best therapy in town.
