Augmentative Communication in Practice: Scotland have agreed to sponsor one person who uses augmentative and alternative communication (AAC User) from Scotland so that they will be able to attend this year’s Communication Matters National AAC Conference, to be held at the University of Leeds between Sunday 9th and Tuesday 11th September, 2018.

What is the Communication Matters Conference?

This is the UK’s leading annual AAC event, with a busy programme of talks, presentations, an exhibition and social events. It provides a great opportunity for AAC users to meet other people and find out more about AAC. There is also a full programme of social events. You can get more information about the conference from http://www.communicationmatters.org.uk/page/conference.

What will the Sponsorship pay for?

Augmentative Communication in Practice: Scotland will pay the registration fees for an AAC User living in Scotland and up to two personal assistants to attend the 2018 Communication Matters Conference. Registration fees include accommodation, meals and access to the conference. Augmentative Communication in Practice: Scotland will also pay reasonable travel expenses to get to Leeds (Standard Class return fare to Leeds for 3 adults, one using a disabled person’s railcard, or 45p/mile for car or van).

How can I apply?

Please download and fill in this form and return it, by Monday February 20th, to:

ACiP:S, c/o CALL Scotland, Paterson’s Land, Holyrood Road, Edinburgh EH8 8AQ

Or email it to enquiries@acipscotland.org.uk.

Unfortunately, Augmentative Communication in Practice: Scotland can only provide one sponsorship this year, so if there is more than one suitable applicant, the winner will be decided by drawing lots.
