The therapist will work with pre-intentional communication, high and low tech alternative and augmentative communication systems, development of language and literacy, and spoken language. Assessment and management of dysphagia is also essential to this role. The transdisciplinary nature of the therapy team means working with students, whānau/families, and class and therapy teams.
