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, 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.
