Each child’s communication skills are different. Therefore, we tailor our program to suit their needs.

Augmentative simply means “in addition to” and encourages children to communicate using alternative forms of communication as well as encouraging further use of existing speech or language skills. Alternative communication offers different ways of engaging in conversation including symbols, signing or the use of technology. Through the use of Alternative and Augmentative Communication training, children are better equipped with skills that will encourage them to engage in richer learning experiences and feel more in control over their lives.

If you believe your child may benefit from Alternative or Augmentative Communication, contact Alex V. Speech Pathology for a consultation.
