Welcome to Visual Communication Consultants

Join us on our journey throughout the Kimberley and Pilbara visiting towns and workplaces, or have our friendly consultant visit you.

Visual Communication Consultants is a Broome based business, established in 2014.

We have helped and advised countless clients to communicate with deaf and complex communication needs people.

Michelle Lewin, the face behind Visual Communication Consultants, has a personal connection to deaf people. She grew up with her deaf foster brother and witnessed the difficulties he faced with communication.

Together with her sister and her brother, they learnt what they could so they could communicate with each other.

This experience has influenced Michelle to become a passionate and caring trainer!

Did you know that Visual Communication Consultants is a registered NDIS Provider?

This means you can now use your NDIS funding for your Auslan, Signed English, Key Word Signing and Interpreting.

What our Clients are saying ..

The Key Word Sign Beginners Workshop was fantastic! Thank you so much Michelle.

The hands on learning really helped to develop the knowledge you were giving us.

Play dough game was awesome!!

Sarah S – Albany

Michelle was a friendly engaging and very experienced presenter who had us all signing in no time.

I can hardly wait to use key signs in our classroom, to communicate more clearly with our students.

Thank you Michelle!

Sasha O – Albany

I really enjoyed this workshop – it was interesting all day.

Loved that we got to do all the signs not just watch and listen.

I feel confident to begin using some of the signs already 🙂

Cindy G – Bridgetown

I really loved how Michelle would help us with other words (signs) while we were struggling with our sentences.

It was great how it was a more informal atmosphere but a lot of information was learnt.

Sharyn A – Two Rocks

Thank you for keeping it fun and engaging with the activities and quiz.

The humour was also great!

Cassie N – Perth

Great workshop, love being able to use the sign handshapes to understand how, why, what with this program.

Great supportive presenter, will be looking for more workshops!

Cassandra C – Gingin
Thank you to Michelle for her time, commitment and great energy in teaching us at Port Hedland VFRS. The custom designed course was delivered in a very professional but fun and educational manner. It certainly has given me the basic skills in understanding and communicating. Thank you again!
Nat Marley, Port Hedland VFRS
Visual Communication Consultants began working with us for our little girl because her language is delayed.

She can hear and understand but couldn’t communicate with us beyond basic gestures and limited verbal.

The freedom that Key Word Sign gave her meant she could communicate her feelings, ideas and thoughts. Signing gave her verbal context so that we could model the words she was trying to say and build on her verbal language.  Thank you Michelle.

Nat Giancono, Broome
Michelle it was great meeting you today and thank you for a very enjoyable and interesting introduction to training!

Looking forward to continuing tomorrow.
