Getting Started with AAC - Bristol
Join us for Getting Started with AAC, a hands-on workshop where you will learn all about what AAC is and how to start using it.
For just £50 your ticket includes a full day of training, an AAC tool kit and lunch in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Join us in Bristol this March at the four-star Aztec Hotel & Spa.
This workshop has been designed for anyone who is in contact with a young person with complex communication needs. Including parents, guardians, carers, teachers, teaching assistants, SLTs, OTs and school staff.
Our Assistive Technology specialists will take you through the theory and some commonly held misconceptions. You’ll also get a chance to try out AAC implementation techniques straight away in small groups.
In the afternoon session you'll be introduced to Grid for iPad, our flagship AAC app. Learn how to use Super Core and create your own content.
