Fife Augmentative and Alternative Communication Team

The Fife AAC Team (FaacT) is a multi-agency team, staffed by a speech and language therapist, teacher and technician, who work in partnership with parents, carers and professionals involved with an individual requiring AAC support.

The team provides assessment and recommendation of appropriate communication systems. Support can be carried out at various locations including home, school, community settings and hospital. The team can also provide advice and training in a wide range of augmentative and alternative communication systems.

Referral Routes

An individual with an expressive communication difficulty can make a request for assistance to the service. If making a request on someone’s else behalf, then the agreement of the individual, parents or carers is required. Request for assistance forms are available from the Speech and Language Therapy Service.
