Multimodal communication is a method of communicating using a variety of methods, including verbal language, sign language, and different types of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).
High tech AAC devices, or speech-generating devices (SGDs), are electronic devices with more advanced processors. They can help individuals with complex communication needs express wants, needs, and ideas more effectively.
