The NRS helps people with a speech impairment, as well as those with hearing impairments, to have successful phone conversations and live a more independent, connected life. It’s a great option to help them stay in touch with friends, family and the outside world, and also reach emergency services when needed.
The e-learning module is specifically designed to raise awareness and understanding of the NRS among speech pathologists, with practical information that will help you explain the service to your clients as well as providing you with other helpful resources.
The module takes about an hour to complete.

This module may also help you to earn Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points. If you have clients with speech or hearing impairments, and they could be phone users, it’s likely that learning about the NRS will suit your personal professional development plan.
