Provides assessment and consultation services to children and adults who experience verbal and/or written communication difficulties. Serves clients who are unable to meet their daily communication interaction needs through verbal speech, writing, and/or computer access.
Provides three streams of service:
- clinician-to-clinician consultation
- assessment and recommendations regarding augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) tools and strategies
- assessment and recommendations regarding alternate access
