EMERGENCY SERVICES COMMUNICATION BOARD

EMERGENCY SERVICES COMMUNICATION BOARD

Last year Jannine was involved in developing an Emergency Services Communication Board featuring Widgit Symbols and key phrases to enhance communication and comprehension with emergency responders, to improve access and safety for children with Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN) in times of emergency.

The project was a collaboration between Ysgol Maes y Coed, Neath Port Talbot Council Children’s Services and the West Glamorgan Safeguarding Board in partnership with key stakeholders: South Wales Police, Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust and Mid & West Wales Fire and Rescue Service.

Widgit is a pioneering software company with a passion for symbols-based communication that empowers individuals to express themselves independently through symbols. You can read the article they recently added to their website and download the Emergency Board by clicking the following link: Enhancing emergency services communication with Widgit Symbols - improving access and safety for children with Speech, Language and Communication Needs (SLCN).
