The Barnsley assistive Technology team are running an AAC Elklan Course in January 2015 “Supporting Children and Adults using AAC“. This is a 2 day CPD course covering no tech, low tech and high tech AAC and looking at the process of assessment and implementation of AAC.
Learners will be required to complete an accredited portfolio which encourages them to put the strategies and ideas they have been learning about into practice in their workplace. If successful, learners will receive a Level 3 or Level 2 apt awards qualification.
The team is able to offer this to those supporting AAC users within the areas we work in, if this is the case and you would like to book please email the team on barnsley dot at @ nhs dot net (replace the word dot with . ) or call on 01226 43 2159. There is a charge for the course to cover accreditation fees and the course materials.
