Google Action Blocks to support communication and physical impairments


3rd November, 2021

Webinar archive

Presenter(s): Charlie Danger, Occupational Therapist and AT Professional

Google Action Blocks provides one-touch access to a growing range of environmental controls and cognitive support features through Google Assistant. Examples include turning on and off lights, setting reminders and sending preformatted messages. Action Blocks is also a functional communication aid, providing access to synthetic speech in a similar fashion to well-known products such as Grid for iPad and Snap Core First.

In this webinar, Charlie will explore the latest features and applications of this interesting piece of technology. One of the most startling features of Action Blocks, other than it is completely free, is that it has full access to the PCS symbol library. This really opens up options for people familiar with symbols as a way of communicating and therefore finds itself a place as a backup communication aid, or a more affordable alternative for Android users.
