What is AAC?

AAC stands for Augmentative and Alternative Communication. People use AAC to help them communicate when they have little or no speech.

AAC comes in many shapes and forms, using symbols or text to select what you’d like to say. AAC solutions range from low tech, using boards and books through to high tech communication aids such as a Grid Pad.

Using Grid as part of your AAC

Grid supports a wide range of needs from learning language with the help of a research-based core vocabulary such as Super Core, to building quick sentences with an accessible text keyboard.

Choose and customise many voices and vocabularies to say what you want to say, however you want to say it.
