The UCA Speech, Language and Hearing Center offers many types of therapy for children and adults that use non-speech communication.
Key Age Groups Served: birth – adult
Characteristics of Disability: Children and adults may need a non-speech communication system for a variety of reasons. An inability to speak can stem from a developmental disorder such as autism, apraxia or cerebral palsy, hearing impairment, a stroke, head injury or other causes.
At UCA Speech, Language Hearing Center, we provide therapy using a variety of non-speech communication options, including sign language, Picture Exchange Communication Systems (PECS), electronic communication devices and tablet applications. Communication systems are not provided by our clinic, but we do have a variety of systems which clients can try before they make a final decision regarding non-speech communication.
