Summary

Access to Communication & Technology (ACT) is the West Midlands regional electronic assistive technology assessment and provision service. As such, we are constantly striving towards establishing a clear way of enabling clients to input to the formulation of goals. However, given our clients' communication difficulties, this can be difficult.

To elicit clients' opinions more robustly to inform our goal setting, ACT have created a goal development resource to be implemented by the local Speech & Language Therapist prior to referral to ACT. This presentation will explore the development of the ACT goal development resource and its introduction within the West Midlands.
