An Opportunity To Improve

If you have aphasia, you know how frustrating it can be to know what you want to say, but be unable to find the words. If you need help communicating, an augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device may help you. When you can’t find the words you need, an AAC device can be your voice.

Lingraphica AAC or speech-generating devices can fill the gap when your verbal speech is not getting across everything you want to say. A communication device does not take the place of speech; it is a back-up plan when others do not understand you. Many people with dysarthria communicate with a combination of verbal speech and a device.

Simplicity By Design

Lingraphica AAC or speech-generating devices are designed for adults with aphasia. The devices are built based on how people with aphasia communicate most effectively. Lingraphica devices feature a system of icons, which combine an image, written text, and spoken words. These icons are built to be easy to identify and understand, with people with aphasia in mind. They feature real pictures and realistic drawings, which are the easiest for people with aphasia to use. Because the system is picture based, it’s still easy to use even if you have trouble reading or writing.

    • Easily add or edit icons, words, or phrases with a few simple clicks.
    • Use video to practice teaching your muscles how to make certain shapes.
    • Use the device to get a kickstart and cue your own speech.
