How to find an AAC Specialist

An AAC specialist is a speech language pathologist who has additional training and experience with AAC. Currently the American Speech Language and Hearing Association has not established a specialty certificate in AAC but that may be happening in the near future.

Often a person designated as an Assistive Technology Professional knows a thing or two about AAC. However, it is important to have a knowledgeable SLP on the team to assure a good communication foundation is provided.

  1. Looking for an AAC Specialist to help design a communication system for a 28 year old with severe Autism and ID. Lives in Clarion County, PA. The individual (my son) responds well to visual communication strategies and supports, inconsistently uses words and short phrases with intelligibility issues for those not familiar with him, and lives in a group home setting. Thanks for any ideas you may be able to provide!
