Scottish Book Awards - AAC Resources

The Scottish Book Awards is an innovative nationwide reading project in which, annually, children and young people from every corner of Scotland read and vote for their favourite Scottish children's books of the year.

CALL Scotland works in partnership with the Scottish Book Trust to ensure that all children, including those with literacy and/or communication difficulties,  can access the books and participate fully in the event, by providing digital versions of the books, in various formats.

For the Bookbug Picture Book Prize 2017, there are symbolised resources, for children who need either a low tech (laminated card) communication board or who use a GoTalk 9+ voice output device. These are also available as Sounding Board files, for those that like to use this (free!) app on the iPad. There are vocabulary lists and BIGmack  / Step by Step symbol tops, as well as Teachers' Guides and adapted symbolised teaching activities. Everything you need to get started! Click here to find out more, and to download this year's symbol resources.
