Include is working as part of the IDEAL Steering Group to help ensure that the needs of learners with a range of communication difficulties are considered within the project.
Inclusive digital pedagogy enhances the digital learning experience for all learners in higher-level education. It recognises that learners have diverse backgrounds and are differentiated by a range of characteristics. Inclusive digital pedagogy aims to make digital education accessible to all learners. Recognising and anticipating diverse needs when designing learning is an approach that encourages all learners to feel that the digital learning experience is open to them without having to ask to be included.
Communication Access UK
Communication Access UK is an initiative developed in partnership by charities and organisations that share a vision to improve the lives of people with communication difficulties.
Include share’s the aims of Communication Access UK, a national campaign to ensure that people with communication disability have the same access rights as people with physical or sensory disabilities.
Giving Voice is the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) campaign to raise awareness of the value of speech and language therapists. Include is very much an active promoter of the campaign through all our work and Alix Lewer and Include have received 2 Giving Voice Awards.
We are charity partner to CardMedic, the award-winning communication tool designed to help overcome communication barriers between healthcare staff and patients – ultimately improving care and patient outcomes.
Include Founder and CEO Alix Lewer contributed to the initial development of an accessible version of the app, and our Champions Group continues to work with CardMedic to review content and provide feedback about accessibility.
