Common AAC Myths and the Real Truth!


Training Type: DynaVox T10/Compass

Description: Do any of these statements sound familiar? 



• Lilly is too young for AAC. 

• Will is able to say a few words so if we get a communication device for him, he will stop talking. 

• He is too cognitively impaired to use an AAC device. 

• I think we need to wait before trying AAC since she just had her stroke. 

Statements, actually assumptions, like these often result in AAC not being provided at all, being delayed, or being limited. Join us to discuss several common AAC myths and the real truth!
