Specialised Communication Services

Get your message across!

Scope knows how important communication is. We also understand the challenges many people face in communicating effectively.

Scope is leading the way in helping people communicate. We can help you find ways to share and socialise with or without words, with communication methods that supplement (augment) or replace (alternative) speech.

This is known as Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC). Research shows using AAC does not stop people from using speech, in fact it can help with speech development.

Scope has a team who specialise in AAC and have the expertise, materials, software and equipment to help people with complex communication needs get personalised, high quality communication aids.

Speech pathology consultation and customised prescription of communication aids can increase a person’s potential to communicate and can assist in developing language and literacy skills.

**The project that funded the Nursery Rhymes to Sing, See and Sign resources has ended. We have created a new and improved suite of resources for these songs and rhymes and they will be available on the new Key Word Sign Australia website very soon.**
