What is AAC?

Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) is the term used to describe various methods of communication that can ‘add-on’ to speech and are used to get around problems with ordinary speech (Communication Matters).

What do we do?

In January 2015 we were funded by NHS England to assess and provide high tech communication aids for spoken communication for children and adults with complex needs in Surrey and Sussex (including Brighton and Hove). Our remit does not cover written communication (email and text), computer access or environmental controls.

Please see our Frequently asked Questions section for more information.
