The Communication Trust has been funded by the Department for Education to conduct a research project on the effective teaching of literacy for pupils who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).

Part of the project is a national survey around practices and experiences for anyone (teachers, SLTs, Educational Psychologists, etc.) who works with a child or young person using AAC and has been involved in supporting their literacy skills. We would be very grateful if you could fill it in and pass it on to anyone who works with children and young people who use AAC. The deadline for completing the survey is the 21st of December 2017

The wider project will involve a review of the existing research literature, conducted by Professor Janice Murray of Manchester Metropolitan University, as well as consultation with practitioners and service providers about current practice. The Trust will be working with an advisory group of people who work directly with this population of children and young people, such as senior leaders and staff of both special and mainstream schools, and those working in service delivery organisations. The project will result in a resource for practitioners.

Although the project is funded by the Department for Education, which has responsibility for education in England, the survey team are also looking for responses from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The results and project outcomes will certainly be of interest to people throughout the UK.
