Communication Aids Workshop!

Our speech therapists, Jacqui and Janine, attended a very relevant workshop this week, focused on non-electronic communication aids.  The workshop was hosted by Kids Chat, an arm of Scope, and was hosted at Dandenong Valley SDS.


We took away a whole bunch of exciting new ideas for the school, but more importantly, we thought there were a lot of great resources for families to use at home.  After speaking to the lovely speech therapists at Kids Chat, we are excited to offer the same workshop here at Monash SDS for parents and families.



Kids Chat offers a 2 hour workshop about their range of communication aids, answer questions about NDIS and communication aids funding, and then offer 1 hour individual consults for families to book in and speak to their therapists to create individualised communication aids for specific needs. 



This is all free, and we are currently taking expressions of interest for this workshop in the first 2 weeks of October 2018.  To book a consult or to register your interest, please email Janine at  We need to have enough interest to host this exciting workshop here at Monash!


Look out for the flyer coming home in your childs' schoolbags as well!
