Summary

Report on a Becta-funded project to develop a symbol-based communication vocabulary designed for teenagers and young adults. The project surveyed young people in a local Sixth Form College, and students at Treloar College about vocabulary and topic needs. A communication programme was developed to be used on a VOCA and in low-tech communication book format. Trials were conducted with a small sample of student AAC users, with positive results.
