A learning resource for health, education, social work and voluntary sector staff who want to know and understand how to improve their own communication and make their service more accessible for people with communication support needs.
It has been created by people with communication support needs who share their experience of contact with services to help staff understand how to improve communication.
This learner’s interactive workbook features a series of film clips in which people with communication support needs interview one another or talk direct to camera about their experiences of health and social care. The workbook shows learners how to use the film clips to reflect on their own practice and identify ways to improve their communication.
