@wespeechies It's Caroline here in the Blue Mountains, NSW. I just like beverages - no favourites. #WeSpeechies #mentoring #AugComm

A1 Sadly, I have had little experience of #mentoring #AugComm #AAC users, so am here to learn from other @wespeechies; #WeSpeechies

RT @SarahMasso: @wespeechies A1 Adults mentoring adults about something unrelated to AAC but AAC as the form of communication?#WeSpeechies

@wespeechies A1 Bronwyn here, sorry I had a teleconference and data coming out my ears - about #AugComm but not mentoring! #WeSpeechies
wespeechies
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/440957173342818304/zqDVNTsm_normal.png
.@SarahMasso is that a Q regarding what we're talking about or whether something you'd like to say is discussed in this topic? #WeSpeechies
wespeechies
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/440957173342818304/zqDVNTsm_normal.png
.@BronwynHemsley welcome Bronwyn! I also have information coming out my ears, both mentoring and Madagascar characters #WeSpeechies
bronwynhemsley
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/791390551144734720/0y3yUjPc_normal.jpg
@wespeechies A1 I have had experience mentoring clinicians and working directly with (i.e. not mentoring) people who use AAC. #WeSpeechies

bronwynhemsley
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/791390551144734720/0y3yUjPc_normal.jpg
@SarahMasso both probably as communication is a part of all aspects of life #WeSpeechies
wespeechies
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/440957173342818304/zqDVNTsm_normal.png
.@SarahMasso the context is wide but the two people in the partnership both use #AAC #augcomm and the topics are undefined #WeSpeechies
wespeechies
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/440957173342818304/zqDVNTsm_normal.png
Q2 What are the barriers to setting up a mentoring program? Have you experienced barriers in your practice? #WeSpeechies #AugComm
wespeechies
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/440957173342818304/zqDVNTsm_normal.png
.@SarahMasso as Michael Williams said, there are many different things a person who uses #AAC can use mentoring for #WeSpeechies
bronwynhemsley
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/791390551144734720/0y3yUjPc_normal.jpg
@wespeechies I think setting up a mentoring program is really valuable- our Uni did it here for staff (Women) was handy link up #WeSpeechies

@wespeechies some people may not know what mentoring is; might not like to be ‘set-up’ with one; might need to find their own? #WeSpeechies
wespeechies
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/440957173342818304/zqDVNTsm_normal.png
.@BronwynHemsley @SarahMasso eg. independent living, relationship development, employment, education, self-advocacy, self care #WeSpeechies
speechwoman
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/550481076859072514/_QkZv1-a_normal.jpeg
. @wespeechies A1 Can the relationship be in flux? Client<>Clinician sometimes; Mentor<>Mentee sometimes? #WeSpeechies 1/2
wespeechies
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/440957173342818304/zqDVNTsm_normal.png

Sorry, dragging with Q1/A1 @wespeechies! When #AAC client is a child, can the r'ship be a mentoring 1, or d'you mentor parent? #WeSpeechies
bronwynhemsley
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/791390551144734720/0y3yUjPc_normal.jpg
@wespeechies @TherapyBox also I think mentoring/supporting/guiding relationships can come and go as needed (transition) #WeSpeechies

@wespeechies - @UniofNewcastle have a general staff peer mentoring scheme. I am not sure how it could be tailored for SLT. #WeSpeechies

@speech_woman children who use AAC can be mentored by older children and adults who use AAC #WeSpeechies

A1 I've seen some not so great mentoring too. Mentor did not understand the role well. This is important in formal mentoring #WeSpeechies
therapybox
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/766580070748135424/ILaJufk8_normal.jpg
@wespeechies #wespeechies I guess it still is mentoring but less formal - in other realms it would be "networking"?

@TherapyBox @wespeechies Is #mentoring different from linking up? Both are important but I think mentoring has defined roles #wespeechies
bronwynhemsley
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/791390551144734720/0y3yUjPc_normal.jpg
@wespeechies @speech_woman I don’t see it as ‘professional’ but I think the term ‘mentor’ is “strong" role model connotation #WeSpeechies

bronwynhemsley
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/791390551144734720/0y3yUjPc_normal.jpg
@TWS_AAC I think it is more than linking up - there is a guide aspect and a ’seniority’ (experience) inferred @TherapyBox #wespeechies

bronwynhemsley
https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/791390551144734720/0y3yUjPc_normal.jpg
@speech_woman yes, similarly, #AugComm is a culture; a language all its own that people who speak are not fully a part of. #WeSpeechies

@TWS_AAC A2, so a facilitator would be better definitions and even a learning how to mentor program - self study a la PSU #WeSpeechies

https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/440957173342818304/zqDVNTsm_normal.png
