Alternative Augmentative Communication

The use of alternative augmentative communication (AAC) strategies can support people with communication difficulties.

At ESA, we have therapists who can advise on AAC techniques and technologies from low-tech options, such as simple communication mats, PODD (pragmatic organisation dynamic display) books and PECS (picture exchange communication system), to the latest in communication apps and devices.

In addition to completing an application for funding, our therapists can help you to try out the various AAC techniques and assist you or your child or family member to learn and use AAC in their everyday life.
