Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) Clinic

AAC opens a world of possibilities for people with speech or language challenges.

More Info
An augmentative alternative communication device can open an exciting new world of possibilities for individuals with speech or language challenges. Our AAC Clinic helps bring that world within reach. Your first visit to the Boundless AAC Clinic begins with a speech-language evaluation to determine if our clinic is right for you. If after your evaluation our speech pathologists determine a device would be beneficial, we help select the best device for you or your loved one.

Once a device recommendation has been made, we then help work with your private insurance and/or Medicaid to secure funding. After the device is purchased, our team works with you to make sure you’re comfortable and getting the most out of your new device.
