WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Hello all! it's @bronwynhemsley in the UK, and running a #WeSpeechies chat from now for one hour - so who is here to join in or just lurk?
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@BronwynHemsley Are you on holiday? A lot of people are, I have noticed! #WeSpeechies
Cᴀʀᴏʟɪɴᴇ Bᴏᴡᴇɴ 🇦🇺🇳🇿 @speechwoman
Hi Bronwyn. Caroline up early here in the Blue Mountains on Wed 23 August 5:00am - sorry about the date error in the png. #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Welcome Sarah! #WeSpeechies where are you? (remember to add the hashtag too). https://t.co/1LNQXD3pSD
Katherine Broomfield @KathBroomfield
An ill-prepared #WeSpeechies here in Glos., Uk. Was planning on lurking and learning more about #CommAccess
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@speechwoman You are up early! I didn't notice a date error - thank my jetlag! #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@speechwoman I laughed at the listing of Perth 3am :-) #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@sarahhayward25 @BronwynHemsley I think @SHor1zon is here as well! hi Shafaq #WeSpeechies
Sarah Hayward @sarahhayward25
@wespeechies I'm in South East London- must remember hashtag! #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@sarahhayward25 I am in the North - High Barnet! #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@KathBroomfield Hi Katerine - Please tweet too! there are so few online at the moment more voices will make more ideas! #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Q1 #WeSpeechies What aspects of the PERSON with communication difficulty would you focus on, in raising awareness of #CommAccess?
Cᴀʀᴏʟɪɴᴇ Bᴏᴡᴇɴ 🇦🇺🇳🇿 @speechwoman
@wespeechies But Perth SCOTLAND is on BST! A great opportunity to join the #WeSpeechies chat. @avrilnicoll @zoe_roxburgh @jscobbie @ASLTIP_UK
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
A1 Communication disability is invisible - how do you raise awareness of something people cannot SEE in the person? #CommAccess #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Indeed it is. Welcome, Perth Scotland! #WeSpeechies https://t.co/Xf4LBHHWMh
Katherine Broomfield @KathBroomfield
A1 Range of skills used by ppl with comm diffs, comp & exp diffs, focus on ind person not disability... #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Yes - so focusing on functions in conversation? following directions? explaining things? #WeSpeechies https://t.co/Yq68KVOWlH
Sarah Hayward @sarahhayward25
@KathBroomfield A1 Yes and what different functions communication serves for the individual #WeSpeechies
Jamie @Jamie_Mullard
A1: respect the way the individual wants to communicate. We can guide them to find what may suit them but it's their decision #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Do awareness raising campaigns in SLP also focus on the health conditions associated with communication/swallowing difficulty? #WeSpeechies
Sarah Hayward @sarahhayward25
@wespeechies I think we crossed over there? I was thinking about different roles the person may have- parent/job requirements/hobbies etc #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
I see - raising awareness of their participation/ inclusion as a person, not defining the person by a communication difficulty #WeSpeechies https://t.co/5smoAWMxLS

.@WeSpeechies This week's topic is "Communication Access," and the article list can be found here: https://t.co/mSPoAIyHRU #WeSpeechies

Jamie @Jamie_Mullard
@wespeechies A1 maybe associated health conditions help campaigns become more accessible and understandable to the general public #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
That's a good idea - add 'communication aspects' onto campaigns for health conditions, to help raise awareness (eg stroke) #WeSpeechies https://t.co/3yVc0hASdV

Hello #wespeechies!! Catching up with msges 😊 https://t.co/3ptHjN0dkA
Katherine Broomfield @KathBroomfield
@Jamie_Mullard @wespeechies yes. Using profile of better known health conditions may help start a discourse on #CommAccess. #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
RT @KathBroomfield: @Jamie_Mullard @wespeechies yes. Using profile of better known health conditions may help start a discourse on #CommAcc
Katherine Broomfield @KathBroomfield
@wespeechies I think the idea of #CommAccess is still difficult for the wider public to understand as comm diffs remain poorly understood #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Q2 #WeSpeechies What aspects of the COMMUNICATION PARTNER would you focus on, in raising awareness about #CommAccess?
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
The concept of a 'ramp for a wheelchair' is visible, does this concept translate well to 'communication access'? #WeSpeechies https://t.co/YFvY6rsOhO
Anna Westaway @anna_westaway
@wespeechies great topic. As a general point, I like @ClareMander 's 'triangle of accessibility' #WeSpeechies https://t.co/hOc4vNsGPN
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Do we often consider the impact of the person's communication difficulty on family members? (third party impact) #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@anna_westaway @ClareMander Hi Anna! Thanks for that - so many factors impact on successful communication #WeSpeechies
Katherine Broomfield @KathBroomfield
A2 LISTENING is a skill that we can all prob improve on. Even more important when promoting #CommAccess to comm partners. #WeSpeechies

WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Do SLP awareness campaigns provide good information on 'what to do' in response to a person's communication difficulty? #WeSpeechies https://t.co/msjUToN9A2
Jamie @Jamie_Mullard
A2 Can be difficult for CPs with loved ones acquired comms difficulties e.g. Aphasia. Important to allow time to readjust #WeSpeechies 1/2
Anna Westaway @anna_westaway
@wespeechies A2 (1/2) I did a recent diss on what parents of children with autism want from comm partners in healthcare to aid comm access #wespeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@KathBroomfield How about a comparison that if deaf people use sign language, how about speech impaired people using visual supports/gestures? #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
What did they want for their children's better #CommAccess, Anna? #WeSpeechies #Autism https://t.co/rhCJayONiu
Jamie @Jamie_Mullard
A2 it's important to support CP to learn about #CommAccess and find their strengths and support in any 'weaknesses' #WeSpeechies 2/2
Anna Westaway @anna_westaway
@wespeechies A2 (2/2) they wanted better pacing and timing, calmness, and understanding of their child's needs - e.g. via comm passports #wespeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Yes, TIME is such an NB environmental factor in communication: would be nice to see awareness campaigns highlight this strategy #WeSpeechies https://t.co/mPUDOj9uDP
Anna Westaway @anna_westaway
@wespeechies So huge variability - but for the partner to know, we need good methods of explaining individual needs to them #WeSpeechies #CommAccess

@wespeechies @KathBroomfield I find it helpful to think about visually impaired people and what they need to access communication #WeSpeechies
Katherine Broomfield @KathBroomfield
@Jamie_Mullard Absolutely. But it's also difficult for #WeSpeechies to work with ALL CPs. How can we make an impact on wider comm circle? #CommAccess

Jamie @Jamie_Mullard
(By 'weaknesses' I mean areas of improvement! Such as comm environment, language/vocab used, using relevant visual support etc #WeSpeechies)
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Yes, the strengths of the communication partners really need 'bolstering' as it can take a lot of effort and persistence #WeSpeechies https://t.co/0FVyd2hBwk

@sarahhayward25 @wespeechies Agreed. I think the similarities are greater between comm dis and VI/deafness than physical difficulties/ramps. #WeSpeechies 1/2

Empower people & their CPs we have contact with to be confident enough to educate others in the #CommAccess techniques they use #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Yes it takes a lot of effort and an enabling attitude - adding more time to wait for responses takes patience too #WeSpeechies https://t.co/K0sOlAX4hg

WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Q3 #WeSpeechies What aspects of TOOLS and TECHNOLOGIES would you focus on, in raising awareness of #CommAccess?
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Use of camera roll/ photos to share w communication partners - how about personal social media profiles/YouTube channels too? #WeSpeechies https://t.co/3jraQDarow

@KathBroomfield @Jamie_Mullard Referring to #uk of course - do any other countries have this within public sector already? #WeSpeechies #CommAccess
Katherine Broomfield @KathBroomfield
@wespeechies Are #WeSpeechies brave enough to use this tech to support #CommAccess ?? I'm getting there, but not there yet with videos/youtube.
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
It seems to be a common issue that #WeSpeechies do not get to meet very many of the person's communication partners. https://t.co/pvW9MC1mLG

WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@KathBroomfield People could then say 'look at my youtube channel' for ways to help me get my message across (like demonstrating ways) #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Is anyone using @YouTube for helping people to make a video like 'book about me'? #WeSpeechies https://t.co/US419j5DOr
Anna Westaway @anna_westaway
@wespeechies Agreed. Is anyone pushing for mandatory training on #commaccess in the public sector to help with this? #WeSpeechies #commaccess
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Training and 'accreditation' as in meeting a particular standard? as in the Communication Access symbol of @scopeaust #WeSpeechies https://t.co/G3sjjJOfvY
