With over 15 years experience in designing assistive technology, Smartbox's software has been designed to improve the lives of thousands of children with communication difficulties
Everyone has the right to a voice and we believe that it is important for all children to be able to communicate their thoughts and feelings freely and openly. For those in our care that struggle with speech or the ability to communicate, the inclusion of Smartbox's Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices allows us to support children with these difficulties to communicate as effectively as possible, in as many situations as possible.
We are so pleased to be part of the 100 Voices Project, an initiative that ensures Smartbox technology reaches adults and children within CareTech residential homes, specialist schools and complex needs services. At Hill House School, our children and young people have access to Smartbox AAC devices, allowing them to communicate with friends and family, control devices around them, browse the internet or access other programmes. Each child is assessed alongside our Speech & Language therapists to ensure that they receive the best AAC solutions for their individual needs.
Cambian are delighted to incorporate this innovative, communication aid to our education and care offering and see Smartbox's AAC devices rolled out across our services, giving many of our children the voice they may not have had before.
