Learn all about the latest developments in AAC products, direct from many of the UK's leading suppliers.
These are product demonstration days supported and presented by our Commercial Members from the UK's leading suppliers of communication aids, equipment, software and symbol systems. Each day consists of five sessions which provide information and offer up-to-date knowledge on the range of AAC products available in the UK. There is an exhibition period when delegates can try out products (there is no opportunity for hands-on during the presentation sessions).
These full-day events (9am to 3.30pm) are open to people who use AAC (16+), parents, carers and professionals alike.
The Roadshows are free of charge to attend, but you must book a place in advance via our Roadshows Diary.
People who have benefited from the Roadshows include:
- People who use AAC, parents, carers and professionals new to the field of AAC and voice output technology
- Professionals specialising in this field who want to update their knowledge (counts towards Continuing Professional Development points) – technology changes fast!
- Everyone with an interest in communication technology
- Anyone who works with children or adults with severe speech, language or communication difficulties and are in need of some special support with communication
We are always looking for hosts for these events, so if you are interested in hosting a Roadshow in your area, please contact Communication Matters for more information.
