We launched a mentorship project in the Manchester area in 2017 with funding from Awards for All (Big Lottery Fund). This was run by Verity Elliott at Creativity in Practice Ltd (external link).
Up to six young AAC users received accredited mentoring training in supporting younger or more inexperienced AAC users. The training is now completed. We presented the evaluations at CM2017 Conference.
Please contact Verity if you have any questions: Verity Elliott, 07891959048, firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to roll out this project in other regions in the future.
