This Course provides information about how assistive technology can assist in making telephones and cell phones accessible.
AAC & Phones
Many dynamic AAC Devices can work with infrared capable, blue-tooth compatible cell phones, or voice-activated phones.
- Contact AAC vendors directly to determine which equipment would be most effective. Most medical insurances will not cover the cost of the telephone or accessories due to it not being medically necessary.
- For some individuals with disabilities affecting their ability to verbally communicate, text messaging is a great option.Warning–Most cities do not have a way to text 911 call centers for emergencies.
