Augmentative and alternative communication, abbreviated as AAC, encompasses all nonverbal forms of communication used by nonverbal or partially verbal disabled people.

Learning to use AAC can be an invaluable skill for autistic people who have trouble communicating verbally. AAC may make life easier until an autistic child is able to speak reliably, or it may remain an integral and useful communication method into adulthood.

The sooner a nonverbal or partially verbal autistic person learns to use AAC, the sooner miscommunication and frustration problems can be relieved.
