Talk about why communication matters
Hi, I’m Tom and I have been working as an Assistive Technologist at Great Ormond Street Hospital for the past eight years. My primary role is assessing children with communication difficulties, with the view to providing them with techniques, strategies and devices to improve their expressive communication. I’m also studying for a PhD involving the use of eye-tracking technology in the assessment of children with cerebral palsy. I will be on the community all this week, representing Communication Matters. I will try and answer any questions you may have about how voice output communication devices work, how they are assessed for and selected, and what current arrangements exist for funding and provision of these devices. Whilst my background is paediatric, I will try to answer questions related to all ages as best I can. Please bear with me if I am not able to respond straight away, as I will have to check this forum around my daily work commitments. Looking forward to speaking to you all! ask away!
