Communication Support Principles

Principle 2
Principle 2

Find out what support is required.

Ask the individual (or their support worker, if they prefer):

  • how they want to communicate. For example by the spoken word (face to face, telephone) or by written word (letter or email)
  • where and when they find communication easiest
  • whether they like to be accompanied by someone
  • whether they need specific support to:
    • understand what people say or write
    • express themselves verbally and/or in writing
