What Is a Clusterbox?
A clusterbox is a collection of AAC equipment issued by KM CAT to local therapist groups, containing each type of equipment available for provision by KM CAT in areas that we cover.
The purpose of the clusterbox is to make equipment readily available for use by local therapists to use in their assessments.
Once the local therapist has identified a suitable communication aid for their patient, they can make a referral for equipment provision (East Kent and Swale) or seek funding, i.e. charity or private provision (West Kent, Medway & DGS).
To make effective use of our clusterboxes, we recommend that therapists attend one of our training days. For access to our provision-only service, this training is mandatory.
Please see our training page for a list of available dates.
We have put together some guidance for informing clients about confidentiality risks associated with cloud-based apps.
To help you identify the right app for your client, these tables compare their features, highlighting their similarities and differences.
