Non-electronic Communication Aid Service

We make customised, paper-based communication aids for children and adults with communication difficulties.

Communication aids help you get your message across and achieve your goals. Scope’s team of specialists have the expertise and equipment to make high-quality communication aids that are customised to you.

How we can support you

We’ll work with you to understand your needs. We can then custom-make communication aids that support your goals.

Scope also provides professional support, consulting, training, and resources for you and your speech pathologist to support you on your communication journey.

Whether you’re looking to update your existing communication aid, design a new one, trial a PODD book or learn how to use communication aids or key word sign with your family and support workers, Scope can help.

How it works

The Scope team will chat to you and your speech pathologist about your therapy goals and individual communication needs. We can then work with you to design and produce your customised aid.

We usually provide support through one of three packages:

Design support pack: Our standard option includes the design and manufacture of your customised communication aid ($1000 – $1500)

My PODD pack: Receive your own customised PODD book plus the option to trial a book for four weeks ($1500)

Basic pack: Send us your design specifications ready to go and we’ll manufacture your communication aid for you (price on application)

Consultation available: Contact us to chat about your options and view the low-tech range, our selection of PODD books and communication apps on the iPad.

Request communication aids and support in your NDIS plan

Low-tech communication aids can be funded under the NDIS Core consumables budget, or the Capital budget (Assistive Technology).
