AAC & ASL
Augmentative / Alternative Communication (AAC)
American Sign Language (ASL)
Research supports that learning to sign is an amazing first step toward developing vocal speech! We are huge supporters of the use of ASL with children on the autism spectrum and love to marvel in the wide range of developmental skills that often increase on their own without the need for intensive intervention.
Many children not only learn to sign and talk, but also learn generalized imitation skills, learn to make eye contact while signing and even learn to initiate and respond to joint attention! We have witnessed the many miracles of teaching ASL to children on the spectrum. We love to sign and would love to help your child and family to sign too!
