The Easterseals Massachusetts Augmentative & Alternative Communication (AAC) Program provides comprehensive evaluation and consultation services to children and adults who are non-speaking or otherwise having difficulty using speech as their primary means of communication. Our services are community-based and provided on-site at locations such as schools, day programs and group homes where Easter Seals staff will work with clients, families, school staff and other caregivers to create personalized solutions for even the most complex communication needs.

With the school year upon us, Easterseals is now providing both remote and in-person services for students with Augmentative Communication and Assistive Technology needs. Depending on the situation, we can work with your students through three different service delivery models: remotely, on site at the school, or even in their private homes if appropriate and acceptable to the family and district.
We can also provide services through a hybrid model, for example, combining in-person visits with remote consultation. You may not be aware that Easterseals also serves adult clients in addition to children, and providing services in the private homes of our adult clients is something we do on a regular basis. We have a protocol which includes doing Covid screenings and vigorous use of personal protective equipment (PPE). We have been providing these community-based services for several weeks now and things have been going well. Each situation seems to be different, and Easterseals is happy to work with you to address the needs of your district and your students on an individual basis. We are here to help!
Please contact Assistant Director of Assistive Technology (email@example.com if you have any questions. I wish you all the best as the school year begins.
