FAQs for South and West Devon (Teignbridge, Torbay, South Hams and West Devon)

Where can I find you?

How much does it cost?

Access to Total Communication Now is Free.

You can meet with a Speech and Language Therapist, who will help to design a visual resource to support communication for Free.

We will make a small charge (cost price) to cover the costs of buying any stationary to make your visual resource. For example, a laminated colour A4 page costs £0.30.

If you bring a memory stick or blank CD/DVD etc. we will provide you with a digital copy of your resource for Free

Can I just turn up?

Please contact us to arrange an appointment.

We do not have a waiting area and cannot guarantee a free slot to be able to see anyone that we are not expecting.

How long does it take?

We will set aside a 1 hour slot to meet with you.

We may suggest that you will need to return for a second meeting if we need more time to complete the resource.

We will be able to give you a clearer idea of how long it will take when you contact us to talk about what you would like.

Who do you work with?

Anyone!

We are happy to support anyone who has a communication difficulty for what ever reason. We can help you to make a visual tool (such as flash cards, a picture shopping list, life story etc.) that may make communication easier.

We are happy to support businesses or organisations who would like to be more communication friendly. We can advise on creating easy read documents and communication tools (such as picture menus, reception area picture communication boards, signage) to improve access to your services.
