What Is
Low Tech AAC?

Alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) refers to a method of communication that can be used as an alternative to (or in addition to) “typical” speech.
Low tech AAC devices or no tech ACC refers to alternative communication methods that either have a reduced application of technology, or no technological function at all. This includes:

  • pictures
  • sign language (Auslan)
  • gestures and facial expressions
  • keyword signs
Low tech AAC can be used either in addition to verbal communication methods. Where you or your child does not acquire speech, low tech ACC devices can be used as a regular means of communication in your day-to-day life.

We offer:

Assessment of AAC needs
Support for communication device hire/trials
Education/training in AAC system use
Low or no tech options (i.e. gestures, facial expressions, keyword signs, pictures etc)

We provide service for:

Frequently Asked Questions

Want to know more about low tech AAC devices? We’ve answered some of the most common questions asked by clients and their family members, in an effort to be as clear and transparent as possible.
But if your question isn’t answered below, you can always get in touch with us by phoning 0439 348 174 or online.

Are augmentative and alternative communication systems lazy?

This is one of the most frequent concerns people have when it comes to discussing alternative forms of communication, especially that of a child in the early stages of language development.

But in our experience, low tech alternative and augmentative communication (low tech AAC) does not make you or your child “lazy”. In fact, research suggests that (when used correctly), these tools will not hinder speech development but rather introduce or support communication competence.

I’ve been approved for an alternative and augmentative communication (low tech AAC) device through NDIS. Can you assist me in my application for the right technology?

Of course! At More2Tell Speech Pathology, one of our specialties is working with children or adults who receive NDIS funding for sessions or device applications.
Simply get in touch with Jenelle, our speech pathologist, via the online form or by giving us a call, and we’ll discuss your individual requirements.

Do you assist with the implementation of high tech devices?

We certainly do. Visit this page for more information or contact us directly.

Do you have a clinic I can attend?

No. We offer a mobile service, meaning we come directly to you. This can be in your home, day service, school* or child care centre.
*Access to school visits will depend on your circumstances and the individual school.

What are your intake requirements?
