Welcome to the methodological material TAKK for the language

Here you will find information and examples about how AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) can be used in combination with the mother-tongue.

We hope that by using this material, you will find both ideas and also knowledge about;  

  • Why it is important to encourage mother tongue development with children in need of support in their communication development.
  • How augmentative and alternative communication can be adapted to suit people with a multi-lingual background who need communication support. 

The material gathered on this website is the result of the work regarding AAC (augmentative and alternative communication) and multilingualism that was completed ​​by the project “TAKK for the language” during the period 2010 – 2014 by MiM Knowledge Center (MiM Kunskapscentrum) in Gothenburg, Sweden.
