Alternative and Augmentative Communication

Alternative and Augmentative Communication 2019-01-14T18:19:17+00:00

Alternative and augmentative communication is a form of communication that can be used instead of speaking verbally, or in combination with speaking. It can enhance your child’s ability to communicate and give them a voice. These devices and systems can be used for children who have severe expressive and receptive language difficulties. These difficulties may be secondary to other physical or cognitive conditions.

Our Speech-Language Pathologists can help your child develop their proficiency and confidence at using:

  • iPad apps (picture-based communication apps)
  • Communication boards
  • Voice output devices and switches

To book an assessment or for more information on Alternative and Augmentative Communication please email info@butterflytherapy.com or call us at 905-206-0300.
