The Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Program provides specialized evaluations to children and adults with complex communication needs. This unique, multi-disciplinary team model includes speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists.

These evaluations help tailor the AAC equipment and environmental adaptions to the individual’s and family’s communication needs and growth. These needs can range from an individual’s ability to express their basic wants, needs, thoughts and feelings as well as supporting their ability to participate at home, school and everyday environments.

Patient diagnoses that may result in the need for AAC include cerebral palsy, autism, Down syndrome, significant speech production disorders (e.g. Childhood Apraxia of Speech (CAS), dysarthria), traumatic brain injury, genetic disorders, and muscular dystrophy.
