Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Laboratory (Speech and Hearing Center, Room B29)

dynavox Individuals suffering from a wide variety of conditions such as cerebral palsy, developmental disabilities, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), stroke, traumatic brain injury (TBI), to name a few, can benefit from augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) technology. Following a comprehensive evaluation, the selection of an appropriate AAC device can improve an individual's ability to control his/her environment and communicate with others. Access to this technology and training in the use of an AAC device can have a profound positive effect on quality of life. AAC can— perhaps for the first time—make it possible for an individual to effectively communicate his or her feelings, needs, and desires.
