New Play Communication Chat Boards have made two popular Bunbury playgrounds even more inclusive and accessible.
Published 25 August 2022
The fun and informative signs have been installed at both the Koombana Bay and Big Swamp playgrounds, providing a visual tool to help support people with communication difficulties.
The aim is to not only support non-verbal people communicate, but also build awareness and understanding in verbal communicators as to how they can communicate with someone who is non-verbal.
The initiative was driven by community members Emily Northcott and Laura Rosenhart, also a local speech pathologist, with support from the City's Co-Design Access Panel to develop the signs, which use alternative and augmented communication symbols.
It is yet another amazing milestone in Bunbury's accessibility and inclusion space.
