Communication Matters is a UK-wide organisation of members concerned with the augmentative and alternative (AAC) needs of people with complex communication needs.
The Communication Matters Road Show is a FREE event, which presents a valuable opportunity to learn about communication aid technology. A number of the UK’s leading suppliers of adaptive devices, voice output communication aids and signing systems will demonstrate and provide ‘mini-master classes’ on their latest products and services. There will be opportunities for questions and hands-on trials of systems, and lots of valuable handouts and literature to pick up.
Each Road Show has a full day’s programme – delegates attend five workshop sessions featuring presentations on new developments and product demonstrations. The Road Show is for:
- People new to the field of Augmentative and Alternative Communication and voice output technology
- Professionals specialising in this field who want to update their knowledge
- Everyone with an interest in communication technology
- Anyone who works with children or adults with severe speech, language or communication difficulties and are in need of some support with communication
