Family Fun Day 2018

It’s that time again – the Family Fun Day is back!

Come and join us at CALL Scotland 11am-4pm on Saturday 21st April 2018.

Run by specialist staff (CALL, FAACT, KEYCOMM, SCTCI, TASSCC and others) and funded by Augmentative Communication in Practice: Scotland, this is a chance for families of children with additional support needs to try out and learn about software, hardware, and specialised communication technologies. If you are a professional you are welcome to come along with a family you work with.

The day is FREE, but please book a place in advance, and tell us the ages of the children you are bringing.

Any special arrangements your family may require? Call on 0131 651 6236 in advance of the day.

  • chat with experienced staff about technology and software
