Occupational Therapy

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapists work with clients of all ages, to help them carry to meaningful occupations and achieve their goals for a better life. These goals might be tying your shoe laces, improving handwriting, accessing the community, or moving from home into independent living. Occupational Therapists work with you to set goals and help you to achieve them.

Occupational Therapists have in depth knowledge of chronic health conditions such as Parkinson’s, CVA or Osteoarthritis, and diagnoses such as ASD, GDD and ADHD so we can work with you to help you achieve your NDIS goals.

Occupational Therapists are uniquely qualified to explore how people manage (function) in their everyday lives. This can be at school, work, or in the home or community. Occupational Therapists play an important part in NDIS plan reassessment, providing assessments to help participants get the funding they need. Occupational Therapists also help people to live as independently as possible through the prescription of assistive technology and home modifications.

Get started by registering for an Occupational Therapist via our client registration form 

Your Occupational Therapist will work with you to complete assessments to understand what activities you can do, and those you want to do, and any current limitations. We can then design and tailor your therapy program to your unique needs and preferences providing help, support and practical solution to enable you to attain your goals and also to offer advice / techniques about how to do something more easily and safely.
