A Multi-Sensory Approach to Care Planning, Advocacy and Reviewing Using Communicate: Ideas

Session 
3.7
Product
  • Martin Fisher (Widgit Software)
Summary

We will be showing how a multi-sensory approach can broaden the involvement and understanding of service users and students in their own care planning, decision making, and reviews.

Communicate: Ideas enables the use of symbols and other graphics in compiling a pictorial map of thoughts, ideas and strategies. We will demonstrate how hyperlink tools allow the opening of other programmes to show reports, communication resources, video, etc. The recording feature allows verbal reports to be added and a final text-based report of the whole document can be added to, edited and printed for use by a wide audience.
