Description: While dynamic display voice output devices with robust vocabulary and the ability to compose messages using symbols, text or spelling affords most individuals using augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices the most comprehensive and effective means to communicate, high tech devices are not always practical, available or desired.

In this session we will consider the variety of reasons that individuals using AAC may need low tech systems and considerations in developing these low tech alternatives.
