Looking, Seeing and Communicating

This website is dedicated to a programme of research aimed at supporting families and clinicians to best describe and support 'looking for communication' in children with cerebral palsy affecting their whole body, who have little or not functional speech. The work is a collaboration between the Department of Language and Cognition, University College London, and the Department of Neurodisability, Great Ormond Street Hospital.
