The aim of this workshop is to understand the multiplicity of skills and strategies involved in enabling a child with a physical disability and complex communication needs to access Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) aids and technology using alternative access methods (switching).

This workshop will explore the movements required and strategies to implement to support a range of children to learn the movements to become more automatic with their switch use for leisure and also for communication. Video case studies will be used to facilitate dynamic assessment, discussion and problem solving of real life situations and to demonstrate interventions and strategies over time.

The workshop will cover: understanding the different movements in cerebral palsy (and like conditions) and its importance in accessing switches as well as strategies to support the learning of movement for intelligible autonomous communication.
