Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC):

At Amazing K, our in-house Speech Team, comprising registered HPCSA speech professionals, manages our comprehensive Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) programme. AAC involves employing tools, strategies, and techniques to support individuals with limited or no speech in their communication. We employ the following three methods daily:

PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System)

PECS is a communication system that we use in class, for our schedules and lanyard. It uses pictures or symbols to support individuals with autism who are non-speaking or have limited verbal communication skills.


The PEC system helps children develop functional communication by providing a structured and visual means of communication, promoting independence, and reducing frustration.


Amazing K has a range of GO TALK AAC devices that we use in class on a daily basis. They are portable and user-friendly electronic communication device.


The Go Talk AAC Devices consists of a grid of buttons that can be programmed with recorded messages. Our non-speaking children learn to use these device to communicate by selecting buttons to generate spoken words or phrases.


GO TALKs offers a flexible and customizable way for our students to express themselves and participate in social interactions, enhancing their communication skills and social engagement.

Makaton Sign Language

Makaton is a visual communication system that our teacher use in class to help our student. Makaton sign language can benefit a young autistic child by providing them with an alternative means of communication, promoting comprehension, and facilitating social interactions.

At AmazingK, our AAC program strives to empower individuals with limited speech capabilities, enabling them to express themselves, comprehend others, and actively participate in their social environment.
