Speech-language pathologists (SLP) can be found working in many places, including schools, hospitals, and independent clinics. When selecting a SLP to evaluate a child or an adult for an augmentative/alternative communication (AAC) device, it is important to choose an individual who is knowledgeable in AAC.
