AAC tools and devices aim to facilitate, supplement, or replace verbal speech.
Picture exchange systems, communication boards, choice cards, and speech generating devices are all examples of AAC options.
AAC isn't just for people who have motor impairments which limit their verbal speech. AAC can also be used for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Developmental Delays, or Cognitive Disabilities.

Typically developing skills in these areas are necessary for social, behavioral, and academic success at school, at home, and on the playground. The tools and games below are some of our therapists' favorites for facilitating improvements in speech and language skills!
