Our occupational therapist works with teachers and families to identify a child's individual and environmental abilities and problems related to school performance. You don't need a referral from a GP, However, a GP can provide you with a Chronic Disease Management Plan (formerly enhanced Primary Care Plan). This allows you to claim partial reimbursement for up to five therapy sessions per calendar year.
Our occupational therapist works with people to assist them to achieve participation in everyday occupations that lead to healthy and independent lives. Occupational therapists are frequently funded by the NDIS to work with a participant to achieve their goals. Here are some of the ways we can help you.
Home maintenance, driving, cooking or budgeting
Showering, dressing, grooming or eating
Shopping and community mobility
Activities which allow people to participate effectively in a learning environment
Reading, knitting, playing sport, etc.
Interacting positively with others in the community
Participating in employment and volunteer activities
Assist with improving functional activities at home or the workplace following injury or illness
We offer highly-trained and dedicated therapy assistants that can help with many daily tasks. They can complement the role and services delivered by allied health professionals, by undertaking some of the duties that require less developed skills. In addition to the support you might already receive, the types of tasks that a therapy assistant can do may include some activities that require a higher level of knowledge and skill than is provided by a support worker. Give us a call to discuss your needs and to see if a therapy assistant would be suitable.
Acute care and rehabilitation, community care, and residential care
Based on a referral from your GP
Helping to achieve developmental milestones in partnership with the family
