About the Center

The Center for AAC & Autism was established in 2009 by the Prentke Romich Company (PRC) to serve as a resource for those working to improve the language and communication skills of kids with autism.

Our mission: "To improve awareness of the power of alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) devices to change the lives of children who are nonverbal or have limited verbal abilities due to autism and other developmental disabilities."

The Center for AAC & Autism is staffed by a team of highly experienced therapists who, using AAC, have taught individuals to independently and spontaneously express themselves. In turn, we provide therapists, educators and parents with:

  • Specialized training on language development strategies utilizing AAC
  • Information tools and additional resources
  • Supporting clinical research aimed at the effective implementation of AAC
