Communication Works 2024  

They say the third time is a charm …. and Ace Centre is delighted to be partnering with CENMAC for a third year to bring you what will be the best Communication Works yet!

Communication Works 2024 are free events, one taking place in London run by CENMAC and another in Oldham organised by Ace Centre. They aim to allow visitors to learn about a range of assistive and accessible technology, communication tools, digital strategies and person-centred approaches.

 The seminar programmes (tbc) will offer the sharing of best practices and implementation ideas when supporting learners using assistive technology. The exhibition spaces will provide an opportunity for visitors to get hands-on with the latest products and innovations as they meet with new and established suppliers.

Here are some highlights from Communication Works 2023 or click here for a blog post

More information will be available soon so watch this space or follow us on Twitter  Facebook or Instagram as we use #CW2024 to spread the word.

Who should attend?  

School and health SEND teams including teachers, SENDcos, teaching assistants, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, QTVIs, educational psychologists, parents and carers, AAC and AT users
