This specially designed three day camp for children 7 - 14 years of age is the perfect opportunity to connect with other families and learn how to use your child’s Communication Aids, in a friendly and supportive environment.
You and your child will:
- Meet other children that communicate in a similar way (often the first time!)
- Learn from experienced Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) mentors
- Practice their communication skills in an intensive and supportive environment
- Work on your child’s communication goals
“It was truly one of the best things we have both ever done. It really helped my son to see that there are others who use devices just like him.”
Scope’s experienced and knowledgeable speech pathologists, occupational therapists, allied health assistants and an AAC Mentor with lived experience, will be available to assist you individually and in group activities.
Activities planned will engage your child to learn how to use their AAC devices in a fun and interesting environment. For example, families will be involved in arts and crafts activities, giving children the opportunity to choose colours,, talk about they would like to draw or create, and follow instructions.
Each participant will engage in a variety of group therapeutic activities, run by qualified therapists, and supported by volunteers and the AAC mentor. This can be funded using your child’s NDIS plan. Additional out of pocket accommodation costs may apply.
