Augmentative and Alternative Communication includes all of the ways we communicate that is not oral speech. For some, AAC is the only way to communicate and be understood. Alexicom Tech's AAC systems include apps, cloud-based AAC pages, and printable pages for people to communicate in all environments. We as partners play a very important role in getting started with AAC. Whether you are a parent, therapist or teacher, you are the key to success!
Alexicom Tech understands the large weight professionals have in finding the rigth AAC system for each user. We love that there are so many options. Alexicom wants to make it easy for you so if you are interested in a trial or if you are an evaluator, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alexicom Tech's AAC apps were developed using research on the importance of core words, motor planning, Brown's stages of language development, typical and delayed children's frequently used vocabulary, as well as feedback from users. Alexicom Tech's page sets include linked vocabulary organized by categories and language use, including core words so the AAC user can create novel sentences. Alexicom Tech's AAC apps provide not only a way to communicate but a system that teaches language acquisition as well!

AAC Users & Parents
Today even more than ever, parents have so many choices and people sharing their opinions on how to help their children. Our best advice is "go with your gut." Parents are with their children all day and know best. As parents, the Alexicom Tech team's goal was to make an affordable yet robust AAC system that is easy to customize and navigate. Alexicom Tech's "Elements" AAC apps are broken in to age groups, vocabulary, and specific locations to keep our apps affordable. All of our apps include the ability to create your own pages, edit pages, picture acquisition, recordable voices, data tracking, and text-to-speech. In addition, each page includes so much vocabulary, with linked "core" word pages to help communication flow and expand. Just load the app or page set to begin modeling and communicating!
AAC in Schools &
Providing communication for people in all environments is very importan to Alexicom Tech. We beleive EVERYONE should be heard EVERYWHERE. With specific AAC apps for school, hospitals, and home, every person of every age can express his/her wants, needs, opinions, and self-advocate. From being able to tell a teacher what you understood during a lesson in school to being able to tell your nurse you wish to see your familiy when in the hospital, Alexicom Tech's AAC apps can give you that voice.
Alexicom Tech's school apps were developed with core vocabulary research from Karen Erikson, student and teacher feedback from schools that specialize in working with students with autism, and subject/curriculum topics.
Alexicom Tech teamed up with ER's and ICU's in Arizona to create page sets to help provide communication to those that cannot express themselves while in the hospital.
