Making the Commtap resources site easier to use on mobile phones

As part of our project to make the Commtap resources site more accessible to parents of children with communication difficulties, we are developing the site to make it work well on mobile phones.

Here we show you what the new mobile version of the site could look like. This is how the site would appear on small screens, we are not changing the site for larger screens such as desktops and laptops.

Have a look through, and please do send us your comments (positive as well as negative please!)

Every page will have a new bar at the top with links to the home page, login, favourite a page (heart icon), search, and menu (three lines you tap on to get the menu).
