Symbolisation towards Literacy AAC Study Day

Symbolisation towards Literacy – AAC Study Day – 13 March 2014, London

This study day, organised by Communication Matters, will explore the relationship between symbol communication and the development of literacy. The presenters will be Dr Janice Murray (Manchester Metropolitan University) and Dr Martine M Smith (Trinity College Dublin).

By the end of the day, participants will be:

  • provided with a framework to appraise symbolic communication
  • introduced to a framework to identifying how to use symbolic communication in pre-literacy activities
  • introduced to a framework for formal literacy training where AAC use is a core component of the process

Places are going fast, so book now to avoid disappointment.
(If there is enough interest, we may be able to repeat this study day in Manchester during 2015).
