Communication Matters interviews
Earlier this month Kerry Ellis was interviewed by two Communication Matters competition winners.
As part of the National Year of Communication ‘Hello’ campaign, Communication Matters organised the “I’ll be asking the questions” celebrity interview competition for people who use AAC. Applicants were asked to submit 10 questions they would pose to a famous person … and the prize was the opportunity to do the interview for real.
Monique Stewart and Courtney Allen interviewed Kerry. You can watch their interviews below:

After the interviews, Kerry said:
“I was honoured to be interviewed by two inspiring girls, Monique and Courtney, both used computers to help communicate with me. I was blown away with the ease of the whole event. I really felt I got a brief insight into both of their lives and personalities.
I have never been interviewed in this way before and found it very educational. Most of us take it for granted that we have the ability to speak and communicate without even thinking. Monique and Courtney have had to train themselves how to do just that; they do it beautifully and I found the whole experience humbling.
It was a pleasure to meet them both and a lot of fun.”
