Augmentative and alternative communication Devices

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Bexley Care Trust should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Bexley Care Trust,

For the attention of the Freedom of Information Ocer
I am an academic researcher, attempting to assess the provision of augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) devices in Education in the UK (devices used to aid communication, typically? for people with diculty speaking).
Could you please send me a list of augmentative and alternative communication devices purchased by or within your authority between 31st March 2006 and 1st April 2012? (So we are including both for children and adults).

We would like the information broken down by both product name (So for
example Dynavox Xpress, iPod touch with TapToTalk, BigMack) and by year.
Ideally you would include the price paid, but we can deduce that from the
products if necessary.

Deven PCT have helpfully give examples on a previous request. The
format they used was

2005/06
4 X Digital Electronic Larynxes (Servox)
2 x Listen To Me
2 x Lightwriters
1 x Dynawrite
1 x Dynamo
1 x Falck Voice Amplifier
1 x Lions Speech Aid
1 x Go Talk
1 x Little Mack

2006/07
9 x Digital Electronic Larynxes (Servox)
2 x Lightwriters
1 x mini Printer
2 x The Grid software
2 x Falck Voice Amplifiers
1 x Listen To Me
1 x Textphone
1 x Talking Symbols Notepad

and this format would be ideal - although we are very happy to reformat anything that you send over and we can supply templates if you would like.

Yours faithfully
Dr Joseph Reddington
