Augmentative Communication

The Augmentative Communication Program, led by our speech language pathologist, focuses on identifying options for children with communication impairments and determines the most appropriate high-tech, low-tech or no-tech solution for each individual child. Our interdisciplinary team includes speech language pathologists, occupational therapists and/or physical therapists and involves vendors from a variety of companies. These professionals consider the best method of communication after evaluating speech, language, vision, motor skills and seating.

Our team recommends the best method of communication and then provides guidance in acquiring any devices needed and the follow up therapy needed to assure success.

This program may be appropriate for children with:

    • autism spectrum disorders
    • cerebral palsy
    • developmental delays
    • metabolic and genetic conditions
    • neuromuscular conditions
    • traumatic injuries
    • apraxia of speech
