My name is Simon Wilson. I have Cerebral Palsy, and I have a disability consultancy called SimonsAble, which focuses on independence and equality for disabled people. I work with many people including disabled people, professionals in the disability sector, and families who have disabled children. I am looking forward to answering your questions here on the Scope community. Whether you are a parent navigating the system to obtain the right equipment and support, or a disabled person planning to live independently, I can advise you on what steps to take and who to contact. For example, if you are looking to live independently there are many things to consider, such as whether to use a care agency or Direct Payments and employ your own PA. I can help you plan or if you just want to talk to someone who’s been through it, I can provide a friendly ear. I use a communication aid and I am also very interested in supporting disabled people to make the best use of technology. As a disable

I am currently doing a research project on AAC and communication methods for individuals with PMLD and the benefits they can bring to quality of life and independence..... I read your post/ blog and it's great to learn about the changes in communication aids over the years.... has there been any problems you have had either with the aid itself not being suitable....funding or purchasing problems... or any other difficulties accessing these resources?
Any help would be great,
