At Kids Chat we provide communication aids such as books, picture-based timetables, social stories and apps for children with complex communication needs.
Did you know you can include communication aids in your child’s NDIS plan?
We are running free workshops in your local area to explain the different communication aids available and how they can be included in your NDIS plan.
Communication aids can help children:
- get their message across
- learn new skills
- reduce anxiety and challenging behaviour
- follow instructions
- learn routines.
Come along to a two-hour group workshop. An experienced speech pathologist will be on hand to talk about:
- non-electronic communication aids
- how communication aids can help your child
- how to request the right communication aids in your NDIS plan
- local services and groups that can support your child.
The workshop is suitable for parents of children with complex communication needs, and teachers and therapists who support them.
We can also offer you a one-hour consultation to provide more individualised information. A speech pathologist will meet with you and your child to discuss your needs and help you find the right aids and supports.
You will also receive a free communication aid at the end of the consultation!
