Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC)

Offering AAC Evaluations and AAC Consultative Services
including individualized student support and team training and classroom support.

Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) includes all forms of communication (other than oral speech) that are used to express thoughts, needs, wants and ideas.

We believe that everyone has the right to communicate and have access to their curriculum with increased function and independence. The AAC team supports the student to excel in their communication.

The AAC team uses evidence-based principles of language development and curriculum based standards to bridge the gap for students in the areas of communication and education.
