Complex Communication Support
Individuals & Families
DDWA is working on a project which aims to improve information and advice for people with intellectual disability who have complex communications needs and for their families and carers.
We are looking to connect with people to find out more about their understanding of communication systems, and also about how a person can contribute to setting their goals in their NDIS plan by using their communication system.
We have a short 11 question survey and a $50 Coles Myer voucher will be sent to a randomly selected respondent.
If you would like to find out more about this project please contact us – 9420 7203 or firstname.lastname@example.org
This West Perth forum for families is being held on 16 October 2018.
Who is this event for? For families with children with disability in mainstream schools.
