How I communicate

    I really enjoyed watching this @disabledkevin! The hat is a great piece of kit. You're also right that the way we communicate has changed because of lockdown, I know I've been messaging friends more often as I'm not necessarily able to meet with them in person in the same way as before.

    Just to let you know, I've moved this into the Disability Aids and Equipment category :)

    Great video! Nice and clear.  My son uses both hi tec communication aid and a spelling board like yours but instead of using his nose he uses the other persons finger (grasping it) as a sort of counterweighted pointer, and just like you, we would say each letter and then the word to check we've got it right.  If we are pretty sure we know the word before he's finished spelling we'd say it but always check with him that we are correct!  Just in case people want to know more about alternatives to speech, look at Communication Matters website www.communicationmatters.org.uk
