Augmentative & Alternative Communication

Our Augmentative and Alternative Communication Program (ACP) provides assessment and prescription of communication devices for individuals in Northwestern Ontario who have difficulty communicating verbally or through written means due to impairments or restrictions on the production or comprehension of spoken or written language. High tech and low tech equipment may be prescribed in our Expanded Level Clinic authorized by the Assistive Devices Program of the Ministry of Health. Prescribed equipment may be purchased by the client, or may be accessible for lease through The Centralized Equipment Pool.
