Access to AAC is more important than ever
In terms of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) this has been a very challenging year. In March, the world went into lockdown, and many schools closed. From one day to the next, children were at home without their AAC system. Therapists had to provide teletherapy, often without access to the school iPad with AAC apps. We responded by providing a temporary license for students and therapists. We also created Crescendo quick communication boards for those without access to an iPad or other AAC device.
Access to AAC is more important than ever, also given the turmoil in the world. AAC users need to be able to speak about the coronavirus pandemic and the protests about discrimination and violence.
If there is one thing we have learned from the pandemic, it is that everyone needs their own AAC system. Shared devices don’t work with lockdowns.
