The Tech Series and Partner Series of communication devices are designed for the AAC user requiring a low-tech solution to meet their communication needs in a variety of communication settings and environments. You will be amazed at the ease of programming and use of these devices.

Individuals, parents, teachers/caregivers are now afforded the ease of transitioning from one communication situation to another by merely changing the overlay and turning a dial to the corresponding level.

The Tech Series provides AAC devices from 8-32 locations and an Environmental Control Unit (ECU). The Tech/Talk, Tech/Talk with Environmental Control Unit, Tech/Scan and Tech/Speak are available for direct selection or scanning and have 6, 8, or 12 levels within one device. This allows the user to have 6, 8, or 12 overlays ready for use. For those working with the AAC device user, communication is now less interrupted. The overlays are programmed in advance so there is no waiting while the device is programmed. Programming can be done for a day or a week of activities, depending upon the user and the activities.

Wow! How easy! Now we can teach a lesson without stopping and our AAC user can actually be an active participant in the communication process.
