Abstract

The development and implementation of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) tools for children in the earliest stages of communication and language development may include a range of communication modalities that include gesture, vocalization, actual objects, photos, picture icons, Speech Generating Devices (SGDs), and higher-tech AAC devices. Internet resources for AAC in early intervention settings include assessment tools, communication aids, early literacy supports, educational tools for professionals and families and much more. Some of the key resources that have been reviewed by a team of professionals through the Supporting Early Education Development Systems (SEEDS) Project in the Sacramento County Office of Education, Sacramento, California, are described.
