We believe everyone deserves a voice.

For 50 years, Prentke Romich Company has been leading the way in giving a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves. Since our founding in 1966, PRC has paved the way in the development of speech-generating devices (SGDs) and continues to innovate in the field of augmentative and alternative communication.

We are also a pioneer in the field of language and vocabulary development, giving children and adults with communication challenges the ability to participate in life.

  6. ASD can be reliably diagnosed by age 2, but children may be diagnosed at earlier ages.
