Aids to Communication in Education provides a focus of information and expertise in the use of technology as an aid to communication. It provides a wide variety of services including in-depth assessments of the communication needs of individual young people in full time education, training of professionals and parents, and Research and Development.
We try to discover or maximise your child's potential to communicate, read and write, by working with you, your child and your child's school. We look to see if technology can provide any solutions alongside other methods of communication, like signing and gesture. We're also far more than just an assessment and training centre.
We produce software and publications (much of it free!) that plugs several gaps in the special needs field, and we also carry out a tremendous amount of research into how technology can be used to its optimum potential for the children that we see.
