Augmentative and Alternative Communication Specialist

Job Description


Augmentative and Alternate Communication specialist - Redbridge, North East London
Remedy Education are currently recruiting for someone with experience working with Augmentative and Alternate Communication. The position would be based working in Redbridge and working outside of the school classroom.
Ideally you would have a background working as an SEN tutor with exposure to AAC or a Speech and Language therapist looking for an additional workload - the role is part-time so could be used to top-up hours you are already working.
Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) has been defined by the International Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication (ISAAC):
"AAC is a set of tools and strategies that an individual uses to solve everyday communicative challenges. Communication can take many forms such as: speech, a shared glance, text, gestures, facial expressions, touch, sign language, symbols, pictures, speech-generating devices, etc. Everyone uses multiple forms of communication, based upon the context and our communication partner. Effective communication occurs when the intent and meaning of one individual is understood by another person. The form is less important than the successful understanding of the message"
AAC covers a huge range of techniques which support, or replace, spoken communication.
These include:
Word boards
Communication boards
Voice Output Communication Aids (VOCAs) Communication Matters
This role is to start immediately - you need an enhanced DBS dated within the last year.
