Occupational Therapy services we provide

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapy is a crucial component of disability services, aiming to help individuals with disabilities enhance their independence, functionality, and overall quality of life. Our NDIS approved Occupational Therapists work closely with individuals to address the impact of their disabilities on their everyday activities, or occupations.

What is involved

Occupational Therapists begin by conducting comprehensive assessments to understand the individual’s strengths, challenges, and specific goals. This involves evaluating physical, cognitive, sensory, and emotional abilities, as well as the person’s environment and support systems. The assessment helps identify barriers to participation in daily activities and informs the development of a tailored intervention plan.

Our Occupational therapists recognise that each person has unique needs and goals. They assess strengths, limitations, and environmental factors that may affect an individual’s ability to perform daily activities.

Based on the assessment, we can provide a personalised treatment plan that focuses on enhancing an individual’s ability to perform activities that are meaningful and purposeful.
