Assessments and the way forward

AssessmentFor your initial assessment, Sonja will compile your personal profile and desires through asking a number of questions. It will include your physical abilities, seating and positioning, social involvement, communication methods, etc. The initial assessment will take about 45 minutes to an hour.

Setting up boardsThe way forward will entail matching your profile to a solution that will suit you, including working with some of the toys, software and devices to put together a plan that will meet your needs. We acknowledge that one does not communicate alone and therefore all appointments will include family member interactions to ensure that they also receive training and become familiar with your choice of device or board.

Follow up appointments will focus on training you to use your chosen method of communication, setting up your devices, customising boards and other layouts as we help you find your voice.
