St Jude’s NDIS Funded Occupational Therapy
Our occupational therapy team possess extensive experience working with both children and adults in a variety of settings, such as at home, school, work and out in the community. As experienced specialists, our occupational therapists understand what sorts of exercises and equipment are needed for various activities, and will be able to plan the most efficient and successful way to build your abilities and confidence.
Here at St Jude’s, we are also able to identify when you simply need the right assistive equipment or technology to be able to take part in your preferred activities. Sometimes the support of assistive equipment is all someone needs to obtain freedom and independence in their life, as they then require less help from other people.
Targeted Occupational Therapy
Our NDIS occupational therapy team will work with you to develop and maintain the skills needed to perform your day-to-day activities, such as personal care, hobbies, attending work or school and participating in the community. By improving your skills, we can help you achieve the outcomes you have identified in your NDIS plan and assist you in living your life with greater independence.
We offer ongoing occupational therapy services to all of our clients, as we strive to build lasting, trusting relationships. We also provide Functional Capacity Assessments (FCA), which involve looking at an individual’s needs in all areas of their life, and making recommendations surrounding treatment and the need for equipment, therapy, home modifications and other capacity-building measures. This thorough approach ensures our clients are able to live their life to the fullest with all of the assistance they require.
