How Can A Device Help My Patient?

AAC devices have many benefits that have been shown both in research and in the success stories told by device users and their families. The most immediate benefit is improved communication, which is associated with:

Increased independence for everyday activities

Ability to better participate in day-to-day life

Fewer communication breakdowns

Better connection with family and friends

AAC devices also provide therapeutic benefits. Simply using a device has been shown to improve language skills and many individuals experience an increase in verbal speech. Lingraphica AAC devices also offer activities, videos, and quizzes that can improve speech and cognition.

Finally, AAC devices are beneficial to the user’s caregiver and family members since it allows the user to be more independent and reduces the burden on others.
