We developed a series of trails to support the Northern Health Trust to work with local communitys, who were encouraged to take part in the trails, using written and verbal communication. Speech and language therapists from each of the five Health and Social Care Trusts in Northern Ireland worked together to ensure the day was a success.
Ruth Crampton Speech and Language Therapist at the Northern Trust received the Giving Voice Innovation award on behalf of her team at the Northern Health and Social Care Trust at an awards ceremony in Birmingham on Tuesday 10th October 2013.
The team ran a treasure trail to launch the 'Seven signs of speech, language and communication disorders', a booklet aimed to help GPs to identify a variety of communication and swallowing diﬃculties.
The 2016 School's Trail, supported by Ulster Bank, will be bigger and better than ever! The trail is designed to be informative, educational and includes interactive stops around the Show. Various exhibitors such as NI Good Food, Dale Farm and others will be positioned as stops around the trail and will devote time to trail participants, explaining about what they do.
We developed the trail based around on the curriculum to include activities some quizzes along the way, with over 4,000 students attending the show; they always go home with a smile.
