Abstract: Communication involves sharing of ones desires, thoughts and humors. People suffering from autism, cerebral palsy or with speech disorders, have inability to communicate and this impacts on their quality of life, education and social relationships. The frustration caused by these would lead to behavioral changes. To favor such people, augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) device is designed which can provide such people an opportunity to express themselves and have effective communication. For people who have disabilities of speaking, augmentative and alternative communication device provides a means of communication. A person who is dependent on augmentative and alternative device can communicate easily about their desires at any time.
