Eligibility & Referrals
In order to be referred to the Communication Devices Program you must meet the following criteria:
- Resident of Manitoba (includes persons living in First Nations Communities)
- 18 years of age or older
- Severe communication disorder (speech alone does not meet your daily communication needs)
- Potential for using equipment (can be determined during assessment/ consultation)
- Client or support team is capable of caring for equipment.
We prefer that potential clients are referred to the CDP by their Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP). If potential clients do not have access to an SLP they may be referred by their Occupational Therapist or other healthcare provider.
