In 2011, a trial was carried out by speech and language therapists working for Sheffield Health and Social Care Trust. The aim of the trial was to test using an AAC device such as MyChoicePad, with adults who have communication impairments post-stroke. MyChoicePad is an iPad app which uses Makaton symbols and signs to help people communicate.
The presentation will demonstrate how MyChoicePad was used with clients and the impact it had. There will also be a video case study narrated by a speech and language therapist, with examples of how clients used this Makaton-based app.
