This website has been developed on behalf of NHS Education for Scotland (NES) to support a campaign aimed at helping people to understand the needs of individuals who may have difficulties as a result of impaired or no speech and who use Augmentative and Alternative communication (AAC). The campaign was part of the "Right to Speak" policy and 3 year programme. The final report of all the "Right to Speak" work can be accessed at https://learn.nes.nhs.scot/70540
