Enquire have a good document called “What’s the Plan?” explaining to young people about the support that’s offered to them to help them learn at school. It informs them how they can get involved in their decision making process, on what support is needed and how it is going to be provided. Terminology such as CSP, IEP and PLP is explained; advice on how to be pro-active given in a clear, concise way.

There are a few available places on a training course to learn about Grid 2 software. The Grid 2 allows people with limited or unclear speech to use a computer as a voice ouput communication aid, using symbols or text to build sentences. In addition to this, you can send and receive email and sms messages, browse the web, listen to music and more. The Grid 2 is accessible to everybody, accepting input from switches, headpointer, touchscreen, mouse, and other options too such as Eye Gaze.
Training is being held at Musselburgh Grammar on Friday 21 January starting at 9:30. Please contact me if you are interested in attending or have questions about the software. firstname.lastname@example.org
