At Two Way Street, we are passionate about the importance of communication for everyone. We believe in giving people who don’t rely on speech alone to understand and be understood by others, an opportunity to share their thoughts, dreams, comments, humour and personalities.

We believe in developing communication beyond basic requests to really hear what children and adults with disabilities have to say, not just what we think they want to say.

What is Augmentative and Alternative Communication?

Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) can be described as a set of tools and strategies that an individual uses to solve everyday communication challenges.

AAC includes the use of text, gestures, facial expressions, touch, eye contact, sign language, symbols, pictures, speech generating devices, iPads and others. It is predominantly used by people with complex communication needs (CCN) where speech is limited in a range of settings.
