Down Syndrome Australia is developing a submission to the Australian Senate Committee on Community Affairs inquiry into communication disorders and speech pathology  services in Australia. 

We are seeking information from people with  Down syndrome and their families on their experiences regarding speech pathology services. We would particularly like to hear  about access issues, gaps in information and services, inequities and availability of quality supports. This includes information on any  specific programs or service models that have worked well.

Members are encouraged to complete this survey to provide information for use in the Down Syndrome Australia submission.  

Please note that you are also very welcome to make your  own submission to the inquiry - see the Down Syndrome Australia website for further information.


The submission is due on 21 February but we would appreciate responses asap and at least by 7th February.
