AAC Evidence Base Research Project: September 2012 Update

Teachers and lecturers – can you help with our research?

The research team at the University of Sheffield has been gathering data about AAC services across the UK.  The researchers need more information about how high-tech AAC is used and supported in educational settings.  If you teach adults, young people or children in the UK who use high-tech communication aids please complete our survey: www.surveymonkey.com/s/AACEvidenceEducationSurvey

Thank you to everyone who has completed our surveys for people who use high-tech communication aids and for their communication partners. We have had an excellent response with over 30 surveys completed but we would like more, so please help if you can.

Come and see us at CM2012 National Conference

We will have a stand in the exhibition space at Communication Matters National Conference. Please do come and see us. You can find out about the emerging findings from the research and see a demonstration of the AAC Evidence Base website in our presentation at 3.45pm on Monday 24 September. The provisional timetable and conference abstracts are available online at www.communicationmatters.org.uk/programme.
