Be part of the conversation with family and friends, with expert guidance on the right communication aid.

Communication aids come in all forms and we are here to find the one that is perfect for you or your child's needs.

Alternative-Augmentative Communication (AAC) supplements or replaces speech for people with communication difficulties. Options include:

  • Signing and gestures
  • Communication books, about me guides and picture dictionaries
  • Daily and weekly schedules
  • Communication boards or books with pictures, objects and/ or messages
  • Alphabet board
  • Speech generating devices.

How does it help?

Research shows that children who are slow to learn to speak actually benefit from using alternative ways of communicating, such as a speech generating device.

Using a communication aid does not prevent a child from learning to speak if they are able, nor will they 'forget' to use speech. 

People individuals with more severe forms of communication impairment may simply find talking just too difficult, and that's when these aids are of great benefit.
