Our assistive communication program is expertly tailored to meet your child’s needs.

Children who have difficulty in communicating are often times frustrated and experience a high degree of social isolation. Through the use of assistive communication devices, children are finding new and meaningful ways to creatively express themselves. Assistive communication offers different ways of engaging in conversation including the use of symbols, signing or spelling. It can also entail the use of simple picture boards or a range of computer programs which synthesise voice as well.

Through the use of such assistive communication techniques, children are being equipped with the skills they need to participate and gain control of their social lives as they simultaneously engage in richer learning experiences as their language develops.

If you’d like an assessment or would simply like to learn more about our assistive communication, contact Alex V. Speech Pathology for more details.
