Assistive Technology

Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) is a support method used as a bridge to supplement verbal speech for those with impairments in the production of spoken language. The goal is to enhance an individual’s level of functional and social communication, whether that is through verbal output, AAC (may include speech, gestures, signs, and aided communication), gestures, or signs. We focus on the assessment and usage of high-tech and computer-based systems that provide verbal output when a button is selected.
