April is autism awareness month.
While augmentative communication can benefit individuals in many circumstances, communication struggles are often part of an autism diagnosis meaning AAC can be an important solution for those who have speech difficulties stemming from autism.
There is clear evidence that AAC can be a great benefit to individuals with autism who need communication support.
As part of our goal to bring communication to everyone who needs it, CoughDrop has created an infographic to help people better understand the important role AAC can play for those who struggle to communicate because of autism.
Print, share, and display this image in your classroom, on a poster, as part of a hallway display, or anywhere else to spread the word that AAC is much more than just a box with some buttons that say words when pressed -- it is a powerful tool in the work to give every person the chance to really be heard and understood.
