Augmentative Communication & Writing Aids Program
Providing professional assessments for assistive device benefits
Assistive devices that support communication and writing have a significant impact on children’s development and learning as well as adults’ capacity for self-determination. Our Augmentative Communication & Writing Aids Program (ACWA) provides supports and services to people with intellectual disabilities. We assess the benefit of assistive devices in order to determine funding eligibility.
Our services include:
- Face-to-face and written communication assessment
- Equipment support
- Skill-building workshops
- Drop-in support
Augmentative Communication & Writing Aids Program was designated as a General Level clinic by the Assistive Devices Program of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care in March 2007. It is a specialized Augmentative and Alternative Communication clinical service for clients of Surrey Place.
