A Telethon Trust  Grant was awarded to the Indigo's Schools team in December 2020, for their 'Country Kids Communicate' project.

Partnering with O’Connor Education Support Centre in Kalgoorlie to implement the project, our Schools team have been trialing a blended service model that has included site visits and telehealth delivery.

 

Staff at O'Connor Education Support Centre are receiving supported in-class demonstrations, training, coaching, consultation, and regular goal setting with our Schools Team to develop skills in supporting student communication and participation. 

Students and teachers are receiving support with one of our experienced Speech Pathologists using a number of different techniques and tools including paper-based boards and communication books and apps.
