Image of all P R C Employees

Located in Wooster, Ohio, Prentke Romich Company (PRC) is a member of a group of companies that are pioneers in the field of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices and language vocabularies.

The group includes:

These companies bring a broad range of products and services to provide the most comprehensive line of AAC devices in the industry.

Employee-owned Since 2004

Begun in 1966, we’ve grown from offering a typing system based on a discarded Teletype machine to developing sophisticated speech-generating devices (SGDs). These SGDs utilize a variety of vocabulary, or language systems, selected based upon the client’s needs and accessed, depending upon the client’s capabilities, via:

  • Head-pointing devices
  • Eye-tracking systems
  • A series of switches

The company also develops iPad apps in addition to offering a bundled iPad/app product.

Today PRC is an employee-owned company and a major presence in the augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device market.

What Sets Us Apart

What makes PRC so unique, however, are:

  • A unique and proprietary language system, and support for that system.
  • Our network of Consultants, themselves licensed and certified speech-language pathologists, occupation therapists, special educators and other rehabilitation professionals. These Consultants help schools, hospitals, centers and parents select the right AAC device, language and accessories for optimal client success.
  • Specialized services for specific disability segments, specifically non-verbal children with ASD and children/adults with severe physical disabilities.

These values have been our mainstay for 50 years…and counting.
