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.
We can provide comprehensive functional assessments and reports to help you access the NDIS, and to help prepare for and review your NDIS plans. This includes assessment for Supported Independent Living and Specialist Disability Accommodation.
We can assist you in your own home to look at how you are managing in your home environment. We can assess for and recommend equipment, assistive technology and home modifications to enable you to live as safely and independent at home as possible.
We will set individual goals and treatment programmes with you and your child to help them achieve increased life skills and independence. This could be to help with fine motor control, sensory processing, concentration, social skills, emotional regulation, organisation, community access and self care.
