Aphasia is a language disorder caused by a neurological event, such as a stroke or brain injury, making it difficult to understand the affected person's speech and written words. Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) offers many tools and strategies to support people with aphasia and their communication partners.
This suite of simple-to-use, customizable AAC tools supports people with aphasia and their families, caregivers and therapists with a return towards natural speech and improved participation in daily life.
