COMPLEX COMMUNICATION NEEDS (CCN)

Do you support people with a disability or people who have complex communication needs (CCN)?

Would you like to learn more about how to understand a person’s specific communication needs and how to support them to be active communicators?

Our CCN workshop will:

  • develop your understanding and awareness of some of the difficulties faced by people with CCN
  • recognise the abilities and potential in people who have CCN
  • explore challenges and potential opportunities when supporting people with CCN
  • build your skills to become a strong communication partner
  • assist you in building a supportive communication environment
  • explore and trial examples of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) tools
  • help you build a communication dictionary/profile for the person(s) you support.
