The Unspoken Project CIC

September 4, 2017

An email from the Unspoken Project:

 

The Unspoken Project CIC is embarking on its most ambitious project yet. A presentation on how to talk with an AAC peep (or just another human being) at the ISAAC (International Society for Augmentative and Alternative Communication) conference.

In 2018, the conference is being held on the Gold Coast of Australia and we really want to get there. In order to do this we need to raise as much money as possible and get as many people as we can on board.

We think AAC users should be heard and it is our aim to create better representation of AAC, break down stereotypes and improve communication access worldwide.

Our dream is that everyone who uses AAC and has communication difficulties are spoken to as human beings with respect.

We are hoping to make a tongue in cheek video entitled “How not to talk with an AAC user”. We feel adding humour to a serious subject is powerful (I think).

If you would like to join us on this adventure, there are a few ways you can do this.

On 21st September we are holding a quiz night at the John Baird in Muswell Hill. The tickets are £5 and include a Ploughman’s Lunch. To book a table, call The John Baird on 020 8444 8830.

We are also planning other events like this throughout the year and will keep you posted on the details as and when they come.

Another way you can help is by giving us your views by filling in our questionnaire about voice. This can be done by following the link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/7THLKJ3

The video we plan to make will require a lot of man/woman power and this is another way you can help. If you would be interested in being involved with this, please contact us at kate.unspoken@gmail.com

Of course, if you’re feeling generous you can always just give us some money. If you’d like to donate, please visit https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/kate-unspoken-1?utm_id=2&utm_term=NwV7KXDxQ and please share with your friends and family.

Thank you and please don’t hesitate to tell us to go away if you don’t want any more e-mails from The Unspoken Project CIC.

We appreciate your time and any help you can offer.
