Our occupational therapy team comprises therapists with diverse backgrounds and extensive experience. We offer personalized services to clients of diverse ages and backgrounds, using tailored therapeutic approaches and assessments for each individual. Our therapists collectively possess comprehensive expertise across various disability and impairment domains. Occupational therapy is service that relies on bringing meaning to people’s lives and we always ensure that we stand by “putting the FUN back in functional”.

A Functional Capacity Assessment (FCA) is an extensive report that evaluates various domains of your life, incorporating standardized tests pertinent to your specific areas of impairment. It offers comprehensive recommendations to address all facets of your disability, aimed at enhancing your independence and access to necessary services and resources. The primary purpose of this report is to support advocacy efforts for securing or augmenting funding from the NDIS.

Continuing therapy sessions are available both in-person at our clinic or within the community, and may also be conducted through telehealth, depending on the specific case. These ongoing sessions encompass not only direct therapeutic interventions but also involve the creation of resources and development of home exercise programs, facilitating seamless continuity of care beyond the clinical setting.

During these sessions, we maintain a focus on achieving measurable outcomes, employing tailored therapeutic approaches to attain desired results.

A SIL assessment report is a report similar to an FCA but with much more specific information relating to your need to require 24/7 care. These reports outline detailed information pertaining to your specific high care disability needs and outlines why 24/7 assistance is required and addresses the ratio of care required.

This report also evaluates the eligibility criteria for SIL, utilizing evidence provided by the client to ensure the factual accuracy and credibility of the findings.

An ILO assessment report is similar to an FCA and SIL report but in this instance, it addresses the need for increased supports required at home for more than 6 hours a day and less than 24 hours a day. Our therapists are trained to know when this may be required and will advise when your support needs fall within this criteria.

A SDA assessment report includes an assessment and report which assists a client in gaining funding from the NDIS to contribute to them living in accommodation which is specifically designed to accommodate their functional needs.

Our therapists have experience in working in all of the categories of SDA and will be able to assist the client in determining what design they are eligible for regarding their functional needs.

Our therapists are trained to perform Low cost, mid cost and high-cost assistive technology assessments and reports.

This includes low risk and high-risk items.

This further includes assistive technology trials which are usually performed to ensure that the chosen devices suit the client’s needs and can be accommodated in their home and community environments.

Our team of therapists is proficient in conducting assessments and preparing reports for both minor and major home modifications. We collaborate closely with builders to ensure that all recommendations adhere to Australian building regulations and align with the client’s functional requirements, while also considering the operational guidelines of the NDIS in this service domain. These modifications encompass a range of interventions, from recommending simple enhancements such as grab rails and mobile ramps to more complex projects such as bathroom modifications and installation of lifts.
