A Right to Speak Supporting Individuals who use Alternative and Augmentative Communication

Guidance to be used by people who use Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC), their familes, strategic and operational heads within health boards, local authority social work and education departments and the voluntary sector


*Individuals who use AAC wish to be described as such and not as 'AAC users'. As this document is referring to both adults and children who may also be described as patients and/or pupils or students, the generic term 'clients' is therefore also used here to refer to all age groups.

†The term AAC is used throughout this document and may refer to any of the aspects of AAC provision, AAC support, and to an AAC system or be used as a collective term to refer to all three.
