Activities per year
In 2005, when Computing moved to a new building, a User Centre for older people was established in order to embed this special user group into the department . Later in 2010, the Straight Talking User Group of adults with complex disabilities who use AAC joined the User Centre . The latest addition came in 2013, when members of Speakeasy (now Speakability), a local group of people with aphasia, formed the Aphasia iPad group following an initiative of a person with aphasia from the Speakeasy group and his speech and language therapist. The aim was to learn about the use of Apple iPads and discover new mainstream apps to support communication.
