Summary

In September 2007 Newman school was given accreditation to run the first wave of City and Guilds training in AAC in Rotherham.

We are the 6 guinea pigs who are taking up this challenge together with our trusty band of classroom support assistants and a speech and language therapist who has been employed as a member of school staff to help with the process.

Our presentation shows the innovative way our course is delivered, and is documented by film clips showing our use of VOCAs and the way we are encouraged throughout the school year to use them in a very functional and inclusive way.
