New Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) Resource is now available on the VDOE Assistive Technology Network website


Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) includes all forms of communication (other than speech) that are used to express thoughts, needs, wants, and ideas. The information on this site includes How to get started, the AAC Assessment Process, Implementation and Use, Research, Resources and Professional Development. Professionals and families now have access to all of this information in one location to help in planning for those students needing communication goals and strategies.
