|Augmentative Communication Service|
The Augmentative Communication Service (ACS) supports children and youth to find solutions to help them to write, or communicate in person (face to face) when low technology or standard strategies and therapy have not been enough to meet their needs.
ACS provides assessment and consultation services for children and youth up to their 18th birthday (up to 21 if they are attending school), who are unable to communicate effectively through speech or writing.
ACS covers the Southwestern Ontario Counties of Middlesex, Elgin, Huron, Perth, Grey, Bruce, Kent, and Oxford.
We are an Expanded Level Clinic with the Assistive Devices Program (ADP) of the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long –Term Care.
We prescribe a wide range of augmentative strategies, including technology to support face-to-face and written communication and that can be purchased or leased for home and community use. Many clients use their communication devices at school; however devices cannot be prescribed for school use only.
