Augmentative & Alternative Communication Resources
Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) encompasses the communication methods used to supplement or replace speech or writing for those with impairments in the production or comprehension of spoken or written language.

This can include both unaided communication methods (those that do not require an external tool), and aided communication (those methods that do require an additional tool). The following are examples of aided and unaided AAC methods:

Unaided AAC:
-gestures

Aided AAC:
-laminated communication board
