Training for trainers
- All communities and interest groups include people with communication support needs.
- Communication access is as important as physical access to an inclusive Scotland.
- Communication support needs are wider than sensory impairment and English as an additional language.
- Follow basic good practice in all communication.
- Communication support is more than large fonts and offering alternative formats.
- A communication impairment can be a hidden disability.
- Think communication access from beginning to the end of any training.
- For all activities think: “If I had difficulty with understanding or expressing myself could I do this?”
- If a training activity is worth doing don’t drop it. If someone cannot access it, adapt it.
- Small actions make all the difference.
- Follow the 6 Communication Support Principles in all communication.
