Question and answer
Q: describe types of support that an individual may need in order to use communication technology and aids
A: Our main concern is to make sure that an individual has the right device to meet their needs. [ However, getting the correct equipment with the correct software, mounted in the correct place, controlled with a suitable method, will rarely be more than 40% of a solution. The rest, and in our opinion, the most important part of any given solution, is the personalisation, training, and ongoing
support required to enable the user to deliver the conversation they require'. The support requied would be training regardless of the type of communication aid being used. Listed below are some aids in use (not exhaustive) Communication charts, books etc Words and symbols Speaking Communication aid. Briefly explained. In theory, even a speaking birthday card is a form of communication aid, but in practice the simplest speaking aids are sturdy battery-powered devices whose single message lasts for a few seconds and can be re-recorded as many times as needed by speaking into a microphone built into the unit. These straightforward aids are invaluable for passing messages and teaching cause & effect. In the picture above, a child is using a single-message device to join in the reading of a book that has a repeated phrase in its text. ]
