Occupational Therapy -> Augmentative and Alternative Communication -> Accessibility

Accessibility

Occupational therapists assess and address the accessibility of an individual’s form of communication in order to increase independence in communicating wants and needs. Examples of accessibility include; increasing font size for the individual to read independently, changing color/brightness of pictures/words to adhere to the individual’s visual and processing needs, adapting the location of where an AAC device is placed in relation to the individual depending on vision/motor abilities for reaching, etc.
