Two of our newer team members, Helen Robinson (Speech and Language Therapist) and Jenny Scott (Occupational Therapist) have been busy developing a brand new resource pack for local services. The pack is available from our website here: www.barnsleyhospital.nhs.uk/assistive-technology/files/2015/10/LocalServiceResourcePackv1-300915.pdf
The pack is a handy go to guide for professionals working within the field of Assistive Technology, containing one page profiles for AAC and Environmental Control products and resources. This includes; communications aids, switches, computer access peripherals, remote controls, mounting solutions, assessments, toolkits and software.
The products and resources within the pack are those which would usually fall within the remit of local services to provide under the new NHS England Specialised Services commissioning guidelines. We plan to update the pack on a regular basis and adding more products over thee coming months. We hope you find it useful!
