Greenfields Specialist School for Communication - Alternative and Augmentative Communication Service (AAC)
How to contact this service
Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) refers to high-tech communication aids and a range of techniques that are used by individuals who have little or no speech. AAC supports expressive communication, and can also support the development of language. AAC does not prevent a child from speaking. In fact, there are a number of studies that have found AAC might actually encourage speech.
If other schools would like to see AAC in action, they should contact the AAC Coordinator at GSSC to arrange a visit. This service is available to all Northamptonshire pupils from pre-school to year 13. Families/schools must ensure any high-tech devices are adequately insured. Families/schools must also commit to supporting the child with any interventions.
