I had the pleasure of spending a day at WALCA in Bexley, NSW, last week.
The report on “Communication and people with the most complex needs: What works and why this is essential,” which Sue Caton and I started last year, is now finished. The final report is available at
http://www.mencap.org.uk/document.asp?id=20568 for the main report and
http://www.mencap.org.uk/document.asp?id=20570 for the Easy Read version.
Sue and I would like to thank, most sincerely, all the members of this forum who contributed to the report. Your input was really appreciated, and we hope you like the final version.

I’ve had a flick through the report and I think it is excellent. It will be of interest to speech pathologists, teachers, service providers, and families. I think it also provides a a good template for other interventions (e.g., physio, OT, music therapy). I must say I’m also well chuffed to see HOP in there (a commitment to give a person 10 minutes of 1:1 time).
