Augmentative/Alternative Communication Materials (Many specifically designed for use with Individuals with Autism S.D.)
Communication is more likely to occur when there is motivation to communicate! SpeechPage activities & AAC materials are designed to provide not just an additional way to communicate, but also great motivating reasons for the individual to have a desire to communicate!
You will find that these materials are not like other you may have come across. All SpeechPage Materials are BOTH designed AND illustrated specifically for AAC therapy by the experienced SLP to help you provide functional and engaging therapy sessions!

As with all educational and therapy materials, the abilities and limitations of the individual must be considered before choosing these or any AAC materials for usage. Not all clients are capable of using specific forms of AAC. It is the responsibility of the consumer to determine the suitability of our products for use in their particular application.
Recommendations for appropriate Speech Language Therapy, therapy materials or communication systems can only be made by a qualified Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) following a formal multi-factored Speech and Language evaluation.
There are many different aspects of the individual's abilities and degrees of severity of communication abilities, methods, and differences that must first be determined through formal evaluation by a qualified professional before therapy can begin.
The clinician's familiarity with AAC methods is assumed. All materials are sole property of SpeechPage.com and are not endorsed, sponsored by or associated with any other company or affiliation.
