On August 18, 2015 staff will gather to learn more about Augmentative and Alternative Communication and how AAC core words can improve everyday word use and communication functionality for children utilizing speech generating devices, or alternative means of communication.

Plans are also currently underway to make CTS more AAC friendly with communication stations featured throughout our clinic.

If you would like more information about AAC, or have questions, please let us know – 630/444-0077
