It is important that people’s AAC is kept up to date with new vocabulary.
AAC WEST offer training in adding vocabulary and editing the software.
AAC WEST have created some short how-to videos to help you get more familiar and confident with the Grid for iPad and Grid 3 software.
It covers basic editing, how to organise and personalise the settings, as well as some areas of the hardware usage, like connecting other equipment, such as a speech case for extra volume and setting up guided access in case you need to lock the iPad down into the app itself.
More training videos will be added to the collection in the future, covering additional areas of the software.
There are further resources and videos on the Smartbox website.
