When I was training as a Speech and Language Therapist, a team from Ace Centre came in and presented about their work in AAC, and I thought “I want to do that!”. After qualifying, I was lucky enough to secure an AAC development post at the Frenchay Communication Aid Centre (now the Bristol Communication Aid Service) and went on to work for Ace Centre a few years later. Alongside my clinical work, I have always enjoyed being part of research and development. Although I love working with technology and seeing how it is developing and changing, I am also really passionate about low tech AAC, and was involved in developing the Look2Talk resource to support the use of symbols by children using eye pointing. More recently, I have been involved in producing a series of iBooks about low tech AAC and have helped to revise and update the popular Guide to Developing and Using a Communication Book.
