This document contains several case studies that make reference to specific items of equipment which can be recognised by their brand names. The Scottish Government does not wish to endorse any specific brand of equipment. However, it was felt that use of generic names would not demonstrate the variation in need that people who use AAC require during their lifetime, and for this reason equipment has been identified. The Scottish Government recognises that there are many manufacturers and suppliers of AAC equipment both within and outwith the UK. For those who wish to explore the range of equipment available we direct you to the following website: http://www.communicationmatters.co.uk.
