Service description:
Communication Matters is committed to supporting people who find communication difficult because they have little or no clear speech.

You will find here information on methods of communication which can be used to supplement the more usual methods of speech and writing. These methods are called Augmentative and Alternative Communication, or AAC for short.

Communication Matters is a UK wide organisation and helps people of all ages and ability who need to use AAC. Our activities include:

- Lobbying, Service Delivery & National Standards - We are currently actively involved in lobbying government to ensure AAC services and equipment are supported in the new NHS reforms. The hub and spoke model of service delivery developed in response to the work for Jean Gross CBE and in consultation with all AAC stakeholders is central to this activity as are the National Standards Documents.

- Research - Communication Matters is leading a ground breaking research project to gather evidence about the need and provision of AAC.

- CM2012 National Conference - There will be great selection of presentations and plenary speakers at this year's conference - book early and save money with our Early Bird discount. Find out more about the conference & how to book a place

- Road Shows - Learn about the latest communication aids, AAC software, symbol systems and related products. Find out more about the Road Shows and book a free place

- Grants - Consider applying for a Small Grant if you have a project idea which furthers the aims of Communication Matters.

- Resources - Do have a look in our eLibrary for leaflets about AAC, past issues of the Communication Matters Journal and other publications; find your nearest AAC Assessment Service; get details of suppliers of AAC products.

- AAC Discussion Forum & E-News - Post a question to hundreds of members in the AAC Forum for help and advice; subscribe to our E-News delivered monthly by email.
