Speech Generated Devices (SGDs)
A speech generated device is a type of assistive technology device that provides an alternative way for people to make their thoughts and needs known, other than writing. SGDs range from custom-made picture boards to computer-based systems.
Speech-language pathologists and occupational therapists work together with the patient, their family, and school staff to find a speech generated device that best meets needs.
Typical patients have a limited ability to communicate or interact. We serve patients of all ages and conditions, but typical conditions of patients served are:
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
Multiple sclerosis (MS)
