Children use speech and language to express their wants and needs, interact socially and gain information about the world around them. When a child has difficulty with either speech or language, they face many challenges because they are unable to convey their message with their family, peers, teachers or community at large. Early Intervention (EI) is a key in remediating these communication difficulties. The sooner EI is provided the better. One way to aid children with complex communication needs is the use of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). A primary purpose of AAC is to increase opportunities for communication with many different people in their lives (parents, teachers, siblings, peers, etc.). Why are we not educating all the communication partners, how to communicate back in the modality we expect AAC/ AT users to use? The purpose of this study is to show the importance of use of AAC/AT in preschoolers and educating all communication partners from a young age.
