Using Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), American Sign Language (ASL), and picture supports can:
- Enhance communication
- Support language development
- Increase participation
- Reduce challenging behaviors
These supports do not interfere with speech development.

By using multiple modes of communication, we are giving those we support more opportunities to understand and express messages!
