Getting started with telehealth for early intervention: Learning modules

Augmentative and Alternative Communication

Your child may use forms of Augmentative or Alternative Communication (AAC), which is when a different form of communication replaces or is used in combination with verbal communication.

  1. Picture cards
  2. Devices where your child can select a picture and the device will speak the word, such as a tablet or a different kind of device
  3. American Sign Language.

If your child uses AAC, your provider will also include their uses of AAC as communication in the assessments.
