Communication Connect Program – MND and Me Foundation

Communication Connect Program

Communication Connect

Being able to communicate is something most of us take for granted. It’s part of our lives and allows us to maintain relationships, work, learn and explore, and keep in touch with the world.

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) breaks down communication.

  • Each person with MND experiences it differently
  • Some people end up not being able to speak at all while others can no longer write.

With MND, everyday activities such as having a conversation, answering the phone, writing a list, may suddenly become a source of profound frustration and anxiety. It affects everyone involved – the person with MND and their families, friends and carers.

The MND and Me Communication Connect Program is aimed to improve the lives of people living with MND, equipping them to stay connected or re-connect with life.

Working in partnership with speech pathologists and occupational therapists, the Foundation has loaned 20+ I-Pads to Queenslanders with MND.
