Greenfields Specialist School for Communication (GSSC) is home to Northamptonshire County Council's Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) service.
AAC refers to high-tech communication aids and a range of techniques that are used by individuals who have little or no speech. AAC supports expressive communication, and can also support the development of language. AAC does not prevent a child from speaking. In fact, there are a number of studies that have found AAC might actually encourage speech.
If other schools would like to see AAC in action, please contact the AAC Coordinator at GSSC to arrange a visit. This service is available to all Northamptonshire pupils from pre-school to year 13. Families/schools must ensure any high-tech devices are adequately insured. Families/schools must also commit to supporting the child with any interventions.
