Mental Health Wellbeing for Deaf Young People through Digital Technologies

i-Muse Project

The iMuse programme aims to enable everyone to increase their enjoyment of, learn from and interact with museums, galleries and similar public spaces through the use of technology.

iPads for Schools

An outcome from the Video for Communication project, iPads have been loaned to three special schools and another mainstream school with special educational needs pupils.

Communicating via Video

Ken, our Founder, and four young adult volunteers worked with two special schools to train pupils and their supporters in the use of computer-aided video communication to help them build confidence in communication.


AACT was a partner, alongside the Museum of English Rural Life and Reading Voluntary Action, in this small pilot supported by an RSA Fellowship scheme.


The aim of the AACT SEED Project was to document what ICT is recommended by major charities and related organisations, and to bring this information together all in one place so that it can be easily accessed by parents, carers and those suffering from communications disabilities.

Summer 2010 Project

This represented an opportunity to make presentations on AACT and selective mutism to both a school and to a group of Chinese teachers during their Summer vacation course at Bulmershe Court.
