Non-electronic Communication Aid Service

The Non-electronic Communication Aid Scheme (NECAS) provides communication aids to adults with speech difficulties. We can support you to develop an aid that suits your specific communication needs.

We provide customised non-electronic communication aids to children and adults with communication difficulties.

Communication aids help you get your message across and understand your world. Scope’s Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) specialists have diverse experience working in disability. We have the expertise and equipment to produce personalised, high quality communication aids for people with complex communication needs.

We produce low tech, paper based communication aids and support you to:

  • get your communication aids funded,
  • choose the right type of communication aid,
  • customise the communication aid,
  • design and manufacture the aid, and
  • learn how to use your communication aid.

See examples of the types of communication aids we make.
