learning

Researchers looked into the use of Blended Learning Networks, on-line groups consisting of parents and professionals, as a way to share learning and experience about the use of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) with people with severe disabilities who have complex communication needs (CCN).

The groups considered a number of topics related to AAC and evaluated their experiences of the BLNs at the end of the study period.

A number of common themes were identified in the analysis of data gained from the groups and the feedback was that the group experience was generally very positive for both professionals and parents.
