User: Explain the importance of ensuring communcation equipment is correctly set up andworking pproperly



Weegy: As a carer it is our responsibility to make sure any equipment the individual uses to communicate with, is available, working and is in a safe condition. [ With regards health and safety, electrical communication equipment should be checked by a qualified and approved electrician to ensure it is fit for use. The equipment should have a label attached to it stating when the equipment wastested, who by and when the next check is due. It is important as part of our job, that we make the individual aware of any dangers involved in using the equipment. For example we must not use electrical equipment near the water.We should also regularly check the equipment for wear and tear to cables etc.We must ensure that any aids the individual uses are available and working, for example hearing aids. We should ensure that service user is able to correctly put them on and encourage them to do so. If they are not able to do this, we may need to assist them. As a carer, it’s my duty to make sure they are switched on and set at the correct volume level for the individual. Then we need to regularly check that the batteries are working and replace any that have expired. ]

Weegy: describe types of support that an individual may need in order to use communication technology and aids - Training can help the user make use of their AAC system to communicate effectively with others, [ to control their environment through communication, and to make choices, decisions and mistakes.[83] Skilled users of AAC show communicative competence in four interrelated areas: linguistic, operational, social and strategic. Linguistic competence refers to language skills in the person's native language as well as the linguistic code of the symbol system selected. Operational competence involves the skills in the use and maintenance of the tool of communication, while social competence and strategic competence reflect knowledge and judgment in communicative interactions, including the compensations required for a slow speaking rate, communication breakdowns and those unfamiliar with AAC. An AAC user may require specific device programming and/or training to achieve competency in these areas. Read more here: ] (More)
