In this week’s podcast, Dale Pickles from B Squared is joined by Angharad Welch who is giving us an introduction to Augmentative and Alternative Communication, more commonly referred to as its acronym AAC. When people think about AAC they often think of high tech solutions, but there is lots of low-tech options which can be very effective.
Angharad Welch is a Speech and Language Therapist who runs Find the Key Speech and Language Therapy. Angharad has worked with a number of organisations including NASEN and ourselves at B Squared, she also speaks at various events.
There are lots of children and adults who use AAC and it can remove a number of barriers. People often focus on high-tech systems, like what Lost Voice Guy has, for example. But low-tech is highly effective as a means of inclusion for a wide range of SLCN.
