Augmentative Communication Therapy

At MPTC, our expert therapists can help if your child needs another method of communicating other than speech.

The first step is to bring your child in so we can complete our in-depth assessment. We will start by finding out how your child communicates his or her wants and needs using a variety of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices.

Once we have finished our clinical assessment, we may recommend a trial using one AAC device or recommend that we look at more options. We will work closely with your family and collaborate with your school to make sure this is the most functional system for your child.

Augmentative communication systems (from pictures to computers) can allow your child to express thoughts and feelings more effectively. Often, through the use of these alternatives, children begin to develop more verbal speech when the pressure to communicate verbally is removed.
