Description

Join us for a Grid Training Day at our Bristol office

This course is perfect for anyone who wants to start using Grid, our flagship AAC software for people with disabilities.

We'll explore what AAC is, how to get set up with Grid and the basics of using symbol and text AAC. You'll also learn how to edit and create your own resources, more about the different types of access, how to motivate users with interactive activities and how to use apps like email and Facebook.

Your free ticket includes a full day of training in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with other parents, professionals, carers and users.
