Communicating at Camp Manyung

Front cover of Communication Access for AllWe all like to get our message across. Communication access is just as important as physical access. So what are the communication barriers that some people face? It might be reading, understanding spoken language or having difficulties speaking. So the way that signs and written communication are designed are as important as well-trained staff.

Now they have increased their level of inclusiveness by gaining communication accreditation from SCOPE. Reception staff and activity staff can now communicate with everyone throughout the camp experience. Staff wear the international communication symbol so that they are easily recognised by visitors.

Access Insight magazine has an article on communicating at Camp Manyung that describes the process and outcomes in more detail. 

SCOPE has videos that show how a person trained in communication access uses their skills.
