Inclusive Communication Nation

13th December 2017

13.00 – 13.45


Have you heard of inclusive communication? Inclusive communication seeks to create supportive and effective communication environments, using every available means of communication possible to aid understanding and expression of need and choice. This includes spoken language, written language and all forms of non-verbal communication.  Inclusive communication is vital to equality of access to services, person-centred care and increased participation and social interaction, and speech and language therapists are key players in promoting communication inclusion.

In this webinar you will hear from SLTs with substantial experience about how to implement good inclusive practices in the organisations and communities you work in.  Join webinar chair Derek Munn, Director of Policy and Public Affairs at the RCSLT, and presenters:

  • Della Money, Deputy Chair, RCSLT Board of Trustees; Head of Service, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust; and East Midlands Hub Member
  • Kim Hartley Kean, Head of Scotland Office, RCSLT
  • Amanda Bennett, Independent SLT

To hear more about the RCSLT’s work around inclusive communication and practical ways of implementing and promoting inclusive communication strategies.
