Communication and Interaction

For children and adults who are unable or reluctant to speak, AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) solutions encourage social interaction and provide greater independence. Acapela gives people a voice, enables everyone to be heard.

AAC includes all forms of communication that are used to express thoughts, needs, wants, and ideas.

People with severe speech or language problems rely on AAC to increase social interaction, school performance and feelings of self-worth.

The solutions using voice technology range from simple buttons or pages that speak when touched, to very sophisticated systems. Special augmentative aids (also known as Assistive Technologies or AT), such as picture and symbol communication boards and electronic devices, are available to help people express themselves.

Solutions may be based on familiar equipment such as mobile devices, tablets and laptops, others use equipment specially designed to support communication.
