PDF download: What is AAC?

Many people have never thought about communication support needs and have never heard of AAC. This leaflet provides short and simple answers to basic questions such as 'What is AAC?" ; "Will AAC affect speech development?"; "How long does it take to learn to use an AAC system?"

The leaflet is a 2013 revision of an original published by Communication Matters, as part of their 'Focus on...." series of AAC leaflets.

This updated revision has been funded by the Right to Speak project 2012-2015, and provides links to Scottish AAC services.

The leaflet is in A4 PDF format. When printing, choose A4 paper size from your 'printing properties' and use A4 paper.
