Augmentative and Alternative Communication

The PGCert in Augmentative and Alternative Communication supports practitioners from across a number of disciplines to lead AAC assessment and intervention in the workplace. The units that make up this award have already supported the academic development of practitioners from speech and language therapy, psychology, education, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, clinical science and IT. This award enables the student to study an assessment and an intervention based unit at level 7 before completing an independent study unit. The independent study unit will facilitate students' use of their knowledge and skills to develop a work based project that will be unique to their practice/workplace.
