The Frank Hilton Organization is now working with TalkLink Trust from New Zealand to assist children with severe to profound communication needs.
The TalkLink team aims to provide assessments and programs for children and also train FHO staff.
They consist of speech-language therapists, occupational therapists, teachers, and technicians.
FHO’s Speech Therapy Unit is the only facility providing speech, language and communication services in the country.
The organization in the past has advocated for the need to grow the professional capacity of speech pathologists and speech pathology assistants to provide these services in a sustainable manner.
Training and intervention programs will be specifically targeted to support the needs of children to increase their opportunities to interact and participate in life.
