[NDIS Training #6] Introduction to Communication

If your son or daughter has little or no verbal speech, this workshop will guide you through current thinking about how to best support them.

This practical session will provide families with a clearer understanding of Guardianship and Administration orders which can often be confusing and also assist families in deciding when they may be needed in the future.

Areas to be covered in the workshop include: 

  • Why and how everyone can communicate, regardless of their disability
  • Your loved one’s right to be heard, listened to and responded to by others
  • Valuing all forms of communication, including those that are used instead of or as well as speech (alternative and augmentative communication – AAC)
  • Supporting communication for interaction and relationships
  • What it takes to learn to communicate in new ways (for example using a communication device)
  • Practical things we can do to support our child or loved one with CCN learn to communicate in new ways
  • What to look for when seeking therapists and other professionals to support you and your loved one on the journey to more successful communication
  • Where to find further information and support to take the next step on your communication journey with your child or loved one with CCN
