iChat My Way

The group was created by Dana Spiers, a mother of a child with a communication disorder and Kimberly Mulder a local Speech Pathologist. The group meets on the last Sunday of every month from 3pm to 4pm at McDonalds Warners Bay in Newcastle. The group has the full support of management and staff at McDonalds who are also committed to increasing the communication accessibility of their restaurant for people with complex communication needs.
