Practical support

If you’ve got this far you will know helping others is important to me. My initial website sprang from the regular questions I was asked when I presented at conferences.  As a result, many of the presentations I’ve developed and delivered have been a direct result of these questions. Throughout my journey I’ve had loads of practical support from others.  These include people within the world of AAC who are incredibly generous with their time.  As a consequence, this means when I meet with others who are interested in AAC, and/or living independently with a disability, I’m happy to share my experiences. I really want others to have the same opportunities and support I’ve been given.

1. Presentations, workshops, training and mentoring

The first covers my journey from my earliest presentation into leading workshops. Then onto developing leadership and mentoring skills. Finally creating my own training courses.

2. Creating presentations

In direct response to frequent questions about creating and delivering my own presentations using AAC. The resulting guidance is based on my own experiences and observations.  Included here are some of the challenges I faced as a communication aid user.  Alongside these are my solutions to overcoming these barriers with practical tips.  Please feel free to share my ideas on technology use, pre-programming and the use of visual aids. Finally, as an AAC user a live question and answer session can be daunting.  You can find here a few of the strategies to respond in real-time.

3. Upcoming Events

The upcoming events are things I’m particularly interested in.  I hope if you are reading my blog and delving into my website these events might be of interest to you too.

4. Past Events

The past events contain details of presentations and workshops I’ve been involved in.
