We believe that each individual is unique, and we are committed to providing personalized care that aligns with their distinct needs, preferences, and aspirations. Our therapists work closely with clients, families, and caregivers to co-create AAC solutions that cater to the individual’s specific communication requirements.
Our journey with each client starts with a comprehensive assessment. We employ evidence-based assessment tools and methodologies to gain deep insights into their communication abilities and challenges. This assessment forms the cornerstone of our therapy plans, ensuring that our interventions are precise and effective.
We remain at the forefront of AAC technology to offer our clients the latest and most user-friendly solutions available. Whether it’s sophisticated speech-generating devices or simpler communication boards, we ensure that our clients have access to the tools that suit them best.
We acknowledge that communication transcends spoken words. Our therapists are proficient in various communication modes, encompassing speech, sign language, gestures, and AAC devices. We emphasize multimodal communication strategies to maximize the client’s ability to express themselves effectively.
Family and Caregiver Engagement
Communication is a collaborative effort, and we actively involve family members, caregivers, and support networks in our therapy process. We provide training and guidance to ensure that communication partners are well-equipped to facilitate successful communication with our clients.
Continuous Support and Training
Our commitment extends beyond therapy sessions. We offer ongoing support and training to empower clients and their communication partners to confidently apply AAC strategies in their daily lives. Our aim is to foster independence in communication.
Advocacy for Inclusion
We are strong advocates for our clients’ rights to accessible communication. We actively work to promote inclusive environments where our clients can engage fully and have their voices heard.
