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.
"Many of our children are non-verbal but have responded to a range of communication aids which shows us the potential voice that is there to be nurtured and listened to.
We believe strongly in choice being the number one thing we can give our children, whether this is what to have for lunch or what to wear that day.
However busy life is, we want to stop and listen to that voice. In the assessment process it was very clear to us that Smartbox is going to develop both the voices and choices of our children."
- Kate Landells, Principal, Hill House School
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.
