Got a Communication System, now what? How to support AAC needs?

29th October 2019

Scope's Communication & Inclusion Resource Centre

Are you working with someone who doesn’t use speech to communicate? Are you looking for practical ideas and tips to use a communication book with a child?

Do you know where to start with an adult who uses an iPad to communicate? Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) uses other ways of communicating, including communication books (for example, PODD) and high tech systems (for example, a Minspeak device or Proloquo2Go on an iPad). This workshop will cater to ANYONE who supports individuals using ANY comprehensive AAC system. A comprehensive system means that people can use it across the day to communicate many different messages to many different people. This workshop will be practical and you will leave with new ideas and strategies to get started straight away!
