About us

Our vision is a world where people with no or limited speech have access to communication; and families, schools and communities get effective training to communicate with the non-speaking community.

We welcome anyone through our doors who can't speak, can't speak clearly, or cannot communicate everything they want to say to attend our Centre for an assessment or therapy service.

This includes people with a diagnosis of: Autism/ASD, Acquired Brain Damage, Cerebral Palsy, Down syndrome, Fragile X Syndrome, Huntington's Disease, Intellectual Disability, Rett syndrome, ABD, Motor Neurone Disease/ALS, Persistent Vegative State (PVS), Stroke/CVA.
