Video of the Week: Parent’s Guide to AAC Assessment

When your child has little or no functional speech, it is tempting to jump right into purchasing AAC technology and get started with therapy and instruction.

Families who are new to this journey may not realize that the best way to get started is with a good AAC assessment, and, thus, will not know to advocate for that at school or with private service providers.
