WOOSTER, Ohio, Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Prentke Romich Company (PRC), the leading manufacturer of alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) devices for individuals with speech disabilities, today announced the launch of AAC Language Lab, a comprehensive new web resource for speech professionals, teachers, and parents who support the AAC community.

The easy-to-navigate site at www.AACLanguageLab.com offers speech language pathologists (SLPs), special educators, family members, and others working with speech-impaired individuals a rich library of teaching and therapy resources designed to support language development among those using Vantage(TM) Lite, the new ECO(TM)2, and other AAC devices from PRC.

Site visitors can identify appropriate goals and outcomes for each key stage in language development and download language lesson plans and other teaching ideas and activities geared to the specific stages.
