PTA Funded Speech Therapy Equipment

“This school year the Speech Therapy department received a range of communication equipment, generously funded by the PTA.

The Speech Therapy department was looking to start a new initiative of an AAC lending library. 

Children at JCSRS communicate in a range of ways and are supported by our total communication environment. One aspect of this is using high-tech AAC. This could be an iPad with a specific communication app, dedicated communication devices or eye-gaze technology. Purchasing this equipment is a financial commitment for families, therefore we wanted to provide the opportunity to trial this at home and school before purchasing, thus the lending library. Due to the funding from the PTA, we were able to purchase several iPads. This has been a great success this year, with several families loaning devices. We have seen increased use and therefore communication of all students involved. The lending library also includes items such as GoTalk 9.

The ability to use high-tech AAC relies on the ability to access the equipment. In school we currently have an eye-gaze system; however, the frame to hold the device was not portable or accessible in different seating/environments. The funding from the PTA allowed us to purchase an adaptable, flexible frame that could be used in a range of contexts. We have seen increased communication and engagement in lessons since using this equipment.”

PTA Funded Physiotherapy Equipment

We would like to thank our generous donors and our wonderful Physiotherapist Bianca for making this possible.

“In March, we received the final items from a physiotherapy equipment order, generously funded by the PTA. This equipment included several kinds of mobility support walkers, an electric muscle stimulator machine, two stability frames to facilitate independent standing and an orthotic device to improve the user’s gait pattern.

Due to the high cost of some of these items, they are not covered by the designated school physiotherapy equipment budget and so the PTA generously offered to provide the necessary additional funding.

The cost involved in purchasing this sort of equipment often makes it inaccessible to many families for individual purchase. There are also limited options to rent this type of equipment in Hong Kong and local suppliers often do not have demonstration units in all sizes for trial purposes.

Having our own equipment in a range of sizes at school provides the opportunity for us to see how the student will benefit, allowing families to make a more informed decision about purchase. They are also able to use the equipment in school and borrow it during holidays, therefore reducing the need to purchase this expensive equipment that their child may quickly outgrow or progress beyond the need for.

Thank you so much to the PTA for their support in securing these much needed resources for our students with challenges to their mobility.”
