Alternate and Augmentative Communication (AAC) - Part 1

Alternate and Augmentative Communication

This film tells you what AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) is, confronts misconceptions and myths surrounding AAC head-on and showcases how AAC emerges as a catalyst for linguistic and cognitive development of a person with disability.

Where communication is often taken for granted, there exists a fundamental truth - the right to communicate for every individual. Communication is more than just words - it's gestures, expressions, and through this film, we see how AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) helps people, who struggle to physically speak, find their own way of communicating.

From the animated gestures of a storyteller to the playful emojis in a text message, we're all users of AAC in one form or another. And for those with complex communication needs - whether due to cerebral palsy, autism, or other conditions - AAC becomes an essential lifeline to communicate.
