According to the website, DynaVox states, “…Language must have a framework and structure. Language is much more than a random collection of words and phrases. The language framework used on an AAC device should be appropriate for the communicator, meaningful to the recipient and relevant to the environment within which the communication is occurring.”
With DynaVox AAC devices and their InterAACt™ framework:
- Individuals can communicate immediately and effectively in any situation;
- Flexibility is an option, allowing communication needs to be met now and later;
- Users can say the intended message in their own words, quickly, granting them the ability to keep up with conversations in everyday situations;
- Language is presented in a familiar, natural format using real words for everyday environments.
