Yooralla’s Independent Living Centres (ILCs) (formerly ComTec) provide information about a large range of assistive and communication technologies that can also be viewed and trialled. Therapists are available to provide information and advice to ensure you make an informed choice about what equipment best suits your needs.
Communication technology therapists provide consultations in the community to demonstrate and trial the assistive and communication technologies in the person’s own environment.
The centres do not sell equipment, but provide retailer details through the national ILCA database.
