Individuals with complex communication needs cannot communicate functionally through spoken language (Beck et. al, 2009). The ultimate goal for communication is to build relationships and connections (Walker & Chung, 2021) Augmentative and alternative communication, or AAC, allows these children and adults with speech or language impairments to effectively communicate their wants and needs.

This session will provide an overview of the definition and specific treatment methods for aided language with augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) intervention for children with childhood apraxia of speech (CAS), as well as a brief overview of the definition and symptoms of CAS.
