Our User Centre groups, including STG, had been affected, as had been so many other groups, by not being able to meet face to face during lockdown. STG successfully rose to the challenge of keeping up meeting by exploring and implementing video group calls. This can indeed be a challenge when your video conferencing platform is also your communication aid platform – all members of the STG use some form of AAC.
Our very own Prof Annalu Waller was tonight (27 Sept) awarded an Honorary Fellowship from the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists for “designing communications systems for non-speaking individuals”. Congratulations!
The workshop showcased the work being done within the communication strand of the Dundee medical curriculum led by Drs Ching-Wa Chung and Jennifer Kennedy (GP clinical tutors) and members of the StraightTalking User Group led by Professor Annalu Waller and Mrs Kathleen Cummins from Computing.
