AAC Pathway for MND

The AAC Pathway for MND and guidance notes are relevant to the structure of AAC services in England. However, they can provide a pathway for good practice for those working with people with motor neurone disease (MND) across the UK.

The aim of the AAC Pathway for MND and accompanying guidance notes is to ensure that people with MND get the best possible care in relation to their communication needs. They are intended to be clear, practical and easy to use by professionals assessing the communication needs of people with MND.

They aim to inform commissioners of the infrastructure needed to provide an effective and efficient service to meet the needs of people with MND, and to help the reader identify the steps involved in AAC provision.

This summary guidance is an abbreviated version of the full guidance notes and should be used in conjunction with the AAC Pathway for MND.
