Description of Program
AAC Institute is a not-for-profit, charitable organization dedicated to the most effective communication for people who rely on augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).
An estimated 2.5 million Americans experience speech disability to the extent that they have significant difficulty being understood by others. Many of these people have no speech at all and also have other physical disability that precludes expressive communication using hand signs, writing, or typing.
Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) is a field of endeavor addressing the communication and other related needs of individuals who experience significant impairment in this area. The goal of AAC is generally to achieve the most effective communication possible for the individual. Aspects of this field include clinical service delivery, education, and research.
