1 Voice Network Day: Sun 20 July

The weekend of 18 - 20 July is the 1 Voice teenager project and family network day.

This will be my last project with the 1 Voice teenagers as I am 18. I need to get good at communicating with my AAC so I can volunteer to help at future events.

If you use or would benefit from using a communication aid 1 Voice would love to hear from you. The website address is: Here is the Network Day flyer:

Communication Matters Roadshow

Communication Matters Roadshow only comes to County Durham every 2 to 3 years, so this is a rare opportunity to learn about all the things that are available to help people with little or no speech or other physical disabilities that make communication and computer access difficult.

The CM Roadshow is for anyone who has an interest in augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), users, potential users, family, carers, and all the professionals who work with people who have communication difficulties.

See you there!

MSOV: 3 dates this week

Our next three story workshops are on the flyer:

I will give a talk about Many Stories, One Voice and some story writing tips.

We we can look at the story planning sheets and writing frames I have downloaded from the Internet, do some art to start designing our story characters, and decide if we want to use some story outlines for practice before we write our own stories.

If you miss any of these workshops, don't worry, we will be meeting at least once a week this month and will post the dates and venues here as soon as they are arranged.
