No. Just the opposite. Research indicates that using a speech-generating device actually facilitates the production of natural speech and language development. In fact, numerous studies have found that the introduction of a speech-generating device frequently has a positive effect on speech; children who are given a speech-generating device often develop speech faster than they would have otherwise (Bodine & Beukelman, 1991; Van Tatenhove, 1987). In 2006, a study by Millar, Light & Schlosser examined the relationship between the use of a speech-generating device and speech development.The overwhelming majority (89%) of the subjects showed improvements in speech production when using a speech-generating device. See our resource guide "The Positive Effects of AAC Use" for more information.
