The ability to communicate with others is a precious commodity that many of us take for granted. For children with disabilities such as autism or cerebral palsy, the inability to express themselves verbally to their families, peers, and caretakers can result in frustration, decreased social participation, and inappropriate behavioral patterns. Augmentative and alternative communication refers to ways, other than OR IN ADDITION TO spontaneous verbal language, that are used to communicate.
The Lowcountry Therapy maintains frequent and ongoing communication with alternative/augmentative communication specialists servicing this area. We have the resources to assist you in obtaining the appropriate communication medium for your child, including Picture Exchange Systems (PECS) and Dynavox.
