I have a text to speech AAC app called MyVoice that I use, it let's you set preset phrases or you it'll talk as you type and Ive found it really helpful

Hi I am semi verbal and one thing that helped me is having a mini white board, because it can be wasteful to use normal paper and on a white board it’s easier to erase, another thing that probably won’t fit most people is having me and my friends all know sign language. This is probably a very situational thing tho, hope this helps!

I use communication cards! Just write down needed phrases on cards, then put them on a keychain or necklace for when you’re nonverbal


Useful things for cards is, I’m non-verbal right now, yes, no, where’s the bathroom etc

theres a newer (?) app called leeloo made for this situation !! it involves buttons for what youre trying to say based on topic, and it does have full sentences
