Imagine just how frustrating and isolating it is not to be able to communicate your thoughts, needs, wishes. To be locked into a place where everyone is second guessing what it is that you want. Over the past few years, the development of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) has opened up a world of opportunities, allowing disabled children to blossom. It is one of the support systems used by non-verbal children and their families that attend School for Parents - children with cerebral palsy, Rett syndrome, Angelman syndrome (and other conditions that affect speech), to help them connect with the wider world. AAC gives our children a voice. October is International AAC month - the aim is to raise awareness of AAC and to inform the public about the many different ways in which people communicate using communication devices and other visual communication supports. #Ihavesomethingtosay

We had some lovely visitors today. The High Sheriff of Nottinghamshire, David Sneath and Mrs Carol Sneath came to see us to find out more about what we do - Matthew, Zara, Isla, Bethany, and Sanaa made our guests feel very welcome! Thanks to ambassador Len Simmonds for arranging the visit and Trustee, Carole Luckwell for the delicious cake!

Support Case Study

‘I was delighted to be asked to support School for Parents. What inspires me is that every day each of the children overcomes huge obstacles, learning to do things most of us take for granted – they don’t realise it though; to them it’s all fun!
