Local Augmentative and Alternative Communication

The SSLST is working with all speech and language therapy providers on the Isle of Wight as part of a LAACES project. LAACES stands for local augmentative and alternative communication (AAC – communication means other than talking, for example, using a picture system or electronic device) services. The LAACES project is a three year pilot supported by the ACE centre. It is to work with local agencies to improve the provision of local AAC services. The ACE centre is a charity organisation that specialises in augmentative and alternative communication and assistive technology. They have a wealth of specialist knowledge and expertise.

The offer from the ACE centre as part of this project is a three year commitment providing support with members of the team to improve and develop our local AAC service. The project could enable people greater participation in our local community, education and health services.
