We are excited to announce that as of 2014 and the launch of our army of Zips and our “spread the word” program we have had an amazing start with the support of our community who have been generous enough to sponsor our families to attend the Club Yicketty Yak Program.
On behalf of the children, families and staff at Optimal Communications Speech Pathology we wish to thank the following members of our community and let them know what an important investment they have supported … the communication skills of a child.
Our families will be notified of their support for their children through our efforts to raise community awareness through the Zip It Up For Kids sponsorship program. Join with us…buy a Zip …choose chatty or Zippy based on whether your job enables you to talk or enter silence for an hour-a morning-or a day. Raise funds and let people know then what it really feels like to not be able to communicate so that we can raise community awareness about the importance of supporting individuals with communication impairments that effect their speech and literacy skills.
In July and August 2014, The Zip It Up sponsorship program will be and has been providing sponsored screen assessments for kindergarten children in the Gold Coast region through the speechies on wheels service. This has enabled young children who are at risk of communication challenges to be identified early and to then gain access to much need clinical support and corrective treatment. We look forward to being able to continue this support to our community on an ongoing basis.
