Get involved in choosing a Communication Access UK Symbol , and set the standards to go with it!
In early 2017 Communication Matters found out that –
- People with communication difficulties don’t always get the support they need in the community.
- People would like a Communication Access symbol in the UK. Businesses already use some symbols e.g
A small group of people were asked to choose a symbol to represent Communication Access. 2 ideas were very popular. For an organisation to display this communication symbol it will mean the staff have been trained to support communication and that the business meets certain standards
Communication Matters now want to hear from more people, with and without communication difficulties.
To have your say about 1) the symbol and 2) the standards to support communication follow this link. http://www.talkingmats.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/Communication-Access-UK-Symbols-and-Standards.pdf You will find the symbol choice and a Talking Mat to decide what is important to include in the Communication Access Standards.
