Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) has numerous benefits. However, many children do not receive AAC services for a very long time. When we provide children with communicative opportunities, it makes them understand the power that lies in communication. And doing so at the earliest age is very important. It gives your child the tools that they need to express their needs, help them to socialize, improve their learning skills and develop language and literacy skills.
It is essential that families, speech pathologists and the AAC community are informed about the various benefits of using an AAC device. Having said that, they must also be educated about the common misconceptions or myths surrounding AAAC and its usage
Research done using AAC, clinical practice experiences and individual experiences have time and again shown that AAC devices are advantageous to promote communication. Let’s go ahead and bust the five common myths.
Everyone deserves to be heard. Choose the right AAC device for your child. If you have any questions about AAC devices, please contact your child’s speech language pathologist.
