Communication Assistance Team

We have a nationwide team of court-appointed Communication Assistants (and trainees), providing support across the country, from the Far North to Dunedin. Our CAs are experienced Speech Language Therapists who have received ongoing mentoring and training into the role of Communication Assistant in Justice Contexts.

They are independent contractors to Moretalk, and are all available to travel to different locations in New Zealand. Moretalk matches a Justice referral to a CA’s experience and expertise, with CA’s in training undertaking cases on a joint basis.

 

We currently have CA's based in the following locations:

  • Kaitaia

  • Whangarei

  • Auckland

  • Tauranga

  • Napier

  • New Plymouth

  • Wellington

  • Christchurch

  • Dunedin

 

Moretalk also contracts other Specialists, for example Occupational Therapists & Psychologists, for specific case work, in order to gain a multi-disciplinary assessment of a persons functional communication. This has been particularly important for CA work where a person presents with a diagnosis of a Mental Health disorder.
