Event Details

Who should attend?

This session is for Occupational Therpists, Speech and Language Therapists, Therapy Assistants and practitioners working with literate adults, who may require text based AAC (low tech) to support their communication. The session will consider ways to adapt text based resources for people who find pointing difficult. Much of the information included in this session is freely available in the form of an iBook - Getting Started with AAC: Designing and Using Alphabet Charts

Or online at www.aacbooks.net 

What will I learn?

 

  • Give examples of the ways in which text based resources can be organised to suit the needs of the person
  • Demonstrate how text based resources can be used with a wide range of access methods
  • Explain the role of the communication partner and the importance of considering how they could support the individual to communicate autonomously

ACE Centre is committed to providing the best possible service for everyone. Ongoing evaluation of the work that we do is essential and your participation in this process is vital. We will ask you to provide information at three stages:

  • Details about you at time of booking
  • Feedback immediately after training event
  • Reflection on practice at 3-6 months after completion of training

Your co-operation is greatly appreciated!
