Picturing Communication: Representation of and reflections on communication by individuals with communication impairments.

Please read the below information regarding research that you may wish to participate in:

Picturing Communication is a Trinity College Dublin project to investigate how people who have communication impairments experience communication.

The Picturing Communication Project aims to learn more about what people who have communication difficulties think about how they communicate.

People over the age of 13 years can take part in this project and will first attend a workshop where they are trained in how to take pictures that represent communication, using a technique called “PhotoVoice”.

Over the course of a few weeks, participants will then take pictures that represent communication during their daily lives.

After this, participants will take part in a brief interview, where they explore what these photos mean to them and how they represent their communication.
