Telus Community Board
A grant from a TELUS Community Board recently enabled ISTAR to purchase videoconference systems (Telehealth technology) for our Edmonton and Calgary offices. Since that time, we have used the equipment on a regular basis to provide needed speech therapy to children at isolated schools, individuals who live at a distance from our offices, and to provide training to another generation of speech-language pathologists. The grant also helped ISTAR with the purchase of iPads for efficient in person and distance speech therapy, to use apps for special needs or young children during their therapy, and to record high quality video speech samples for assessment and research purposes. We appreciate all of the help the TELUS Community Board grant has given us in these many technical endeavours!
TELUS Community Boards are an innovative and groundbreaking effort that puts decision-making in the hands of local leaders who know their communities best. This approach helps make our financial support accessible to the grassroots organizations that make such a tremendous difference in building stronger communities.
ISTAR's staff and clients sincerely thank the Telus Community Board
for their support clearly demonstrating that every voice matters!
