Swindon Schools AAC Service

Members of the team are committed to partnership working, and the success of the assistive solutions depends upon effective relationships with school staff, parents and other professionals.

This is especially true for AAC solutions where the advisory teacher works as part of a larger cross-agency team called the Swindon Schools AAC Assessment Team.

Referrals for this service should be made via Speech and Language Therapy Service. Please contact a member of the team for more details: Saltway Centre 01793 466790
