Those who cannot speak have a lot to say!

Based on the current competencies of a person, AAC develops individual measures for people who cannot (sufficiently) speak or understand language (adequately) due to a disability. Alternative and complementary forms of communication are used such as facial expressions, gestures or signing, and communication aids such as communication folders, symbol boards, speaking keys or computers with a voice synthesizer.

The AAC Lending Section at the Hannover Support and Learning Centre offers a wide range of communication aids for students of the Institute of Special Education to try out and borrow. In addition, the AAC Lending Section provides the opportunity to get to know educational, therapeutic and diagnostic materials for working with people who use AAC, to share ideas for increasing participation in everyday life or to promote the communicative skills of AAC users, and to obtain further information about AAC in Lower Saxony.

In addition to the permanently installed seminar equipment (beamer, screen, blackboard), the Support and Learning Centre has mobile media for student assignments, some of which can be borrowed on request. Binding and laminating can be done at cost price.
