The Kaiju were hypothesised to have a hive mind. It was virtually proven when two Kaiju came through the breach to find Newt after he drifted with part of a dead Kaiju's brain.

Given that, why, in the final battle of the movie, does Slattern call for assistance from Raiju using sound instead of through telepathic means?

    Because "Wails Telepathically" in closed captioning is a terrible thing to add to the final battle of the movie? – Vogie Apr 6 '16 at 18:12

    It's probably the equivalent of an emoji. Contrast "I need assistance" with "I need assistance :-O"* – Valorum Apr 16 '16 at 10:12
