IOE’s new Communication Support service will have your entire support team up to date and ready to assist you with your communication needs.
Our skilled Communication Coordinator can work with your team of support workers to upskill them on specific communication devices and your individual communication support needs.
This provides a much more sustainable system, with great communication support provided by every support worker on every shift with all support staff having been trained to be competent in the use, modelling, set up and editing of all of your communication aids and devices.
Your ‘team of support’ is not restricted to just IOE support workers and volunteers. The coordinator can work with others who support you to help them understand and support your communication needs – education aides, neighbours, family friends, sports coaches, etc.
This service will make communication easier for you and help to create a much more inclusive and communication accessible community.
