AAC plays an important role in helping our families navigate medical procedures, tolerate hospital/ doctor visits and, explain their healthcare needs.Kasey's mom Tracey describes her experience after surgery, "Kasey was groggy and on lots of medication post surgery, but when offered her T10, she navigated to "more"! We'd been giving her sips of apple juice and she clearly wanted more."
