Communication Brought to Life
Today, there are more choices than ever when trying to find the most appropriate AAC devices for individuals with significant speech and language disabilities. It is important not to lose sight of the ultimate goal which is to provide a device with a meaningful and robust language system that will support communication in everyday activities as well as encourage the development and use of higher level language.
Communication is so much more than transferring information from one person to another. It is about expressing who you really are as a person. It's about having the ability to show people your unique personality, your beliefs, feelings and ideas. Expression is a creative act that gives each of us a voice—defines our unique self to those around us. True expression requires the right tools at the right time in order to be successful.
What is InterAACt and how does it support communication
and self expression?
Language is the foundation of communication and expression and in order for it to be truly useful, language must have a framework and structure. Language is much more than a random collection of words and phrases. The language framework used on an AAC device should be appropriate for the communicator, meaningful to the recipient and relevant to the environment within which the communication is occurring.
It is because of this principle that DynaVox has combined a range of clinical evidence with powerful technology to create the most complete language system available on AAC devices today. InterAACt is the language framework used on all DynaVox devices and it allows individuals with speech and language disabilities to successfully communicate, develop high level language skills and express themselves, in everyday activities. InterAACt provides the communication messages needed to say what you want, how you want and when you want. InterAACt uses familiar communication settings that are natural and easy to use. Many language systems provide the tools for basic communication, but InterAACt provides the tools for complete communication and self expression.
