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, 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, 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.

i-Pad Loan Program

Working in partnership with speech pathologists and occupational therapists, the Foundation has loaned 40+ I-Pads to Queenslanders with MND. More information on loan i-Pads can be found HERE.

Voice Banking

In conjunction with the University of Queensland, the MND and Me Foundation has developed a guide for people wanting to bank their voice at home. More information and a copy of the manual can be found HERE.
