AAC Modules

Commissioned by NHS Education for Scotland (NES) as part of the Scottish Right to Speak initiative, CALL Scotland has produced a series of 2 online learning modules on Augmentative and Alternative Communication. Aimed at services, teams or individuals to review their current knowledge and develop best practice, and to ensure positive outcomes for people who use AAC.

Series 1: Introduction to AAC

The first series, at an introductory level, is accessible to people without any previous specialised knowledge of communication disability, or of communication aids, and is useful for staff, students or carers in a variety of disciplines.

The modules are linked to the IPAACKS framework for identifying staff learning and development needs, with modules 2-5 showing the 'Core Values and Commitments' and 'AAC Specific Knowledge and Skills' that are particularly relevant to that module topic.

The 5 short modules are best viewed in sequence. However, they can also be viewed individually
