Talking About Experience - A practical workshop on using AAC equipment to support Personal Narrative

Following on from the Story Telling Study Day in 2009, this workshop offered an opportunity for teachers, speech and language therapists, parents, family members and carers who work with children and adults who use AAC and/or learning disabilities to engage in the practicalities of using mid- and high-tech AAC devices to support the development and sharing of personal narratives. The event included both, traditional platform presentations and practical workshop sessions.

Presenters: Martine Smith, Nicola Grove, Annalu Waller and Rolf Black.
