    A service user would be very confused if referred to the wrong 'ACT' 🤩😏 xx

    ACT = Access to Communication and Technology. Sometimes the ‘A’ stands for Assistive or Augmented, but basically it’s the same thing. xx

    Lynne K its access to communication.

    Matthew I can only type one handed as right hand useless.

    I have been so lucky to have found a 2nd hand eye tracker & system on this very forum.

    Its ok saying that you should not fund your own communication system but the reality is you do.

    So long as your hands are okay I would recommend that you use a boogie board. I find keyboards difficult to use as my fingers don't always go where I want them to go. 🤔😁🤗😍xx

    started a topic ACT referral

    ACT referral

    Hi all. My speech is on the way out. Expected so I asked my SLT for a referral to ACT. Unfortunately the one in Birmingham are not taking on new clients & I've been placed on a waiting list. Normally they do prioritise ALS patients however due to covid back log they can't and I've been told it will be a long wait.

    I don't want to put the frighteners out but those with bulbar/voice loss issues i would ask for early referral because without the assessment funding is virtually impossible.

    hopefully less densely Populated areas there is a better service.
    Again feeling the strain of a postcode lottery.

Working...
