Summary

Lucy (AAC Systems Developer) and Katrina (Speech and Language Therapist) gave up their voices and used communication aids for one week.

They used them at work, at home, and in the community:

  • to raise awareness of AAC
  • to gain new knowledge and experience of using an AAC device
  • to help raise money for the Star Appeal for development of the National Star College where they work.

This presentation is an account of their experiences.
