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.

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).
