Police, legal and justice services
In police, legal or justice services, a victim, witness or accused person may require a Communication Intermediary to assist with communication when making disclosures to police, giving testimony in court, and expressing opinions and decisionsat legal meetings.
Communication Intermediaries are Speech-Language Pathologists with additional training from CDAC to work in these situations. You can find a communication intermediary on the CDAC database.
