Introducing and Developing Choices
In order to enable a person to interact with their environment and become an active participant in learning they will need to develop the ability to discriminate. Providing the person with opportunities to understand and communicate choices can encourage this. This requires careful consideration and analysis of that person’s abilities and needs, which may inform on issues such as assessment, access methods, content of presentation, and strategies for developing their communication skills. Technology can play an effective role in supporting people to make choices with the use of low and high tech communication resources and strategies, special access devices, software and hardware.
The ability to communicate is fundamental to a basic quality of life, yet for many people effective communication is difficult because of a physical impairment, language disorder or learning disability. We work with people of all ages who face such challenges.Find out more about the ACE Centre See all ACE Centre documents on the gateway
