Developing a National AAC Competencies Framework

Session 
5.1
Practice Report
  • Victoria Lundie
Summary

As a result of the National Assesment Services Forum meeting in February 2011, two working parties were set up: one to look at setting up an outcome measures framework and the other to look at developing a national competency framework for AAC.  The latter project will endeavour to provide a framework that can be used by any professional who works in the field of AAC and can be applied to both adult and peadiatric services.

The presentation will look at how the project has developed so far and how it could be used by services/professionals within your area.  It will also be an opportunity for you to feed ideas into the project so that the competency framework can be developed to meet the needs of as many people as possible.
