Who We Help

Our Allied Health services are suitable for all ages and all requirements/diagnoses with an NDIS plan. Allied Health services can be for assessments, reports, AT prescriptions or ongoing therapy. A referral to Allied Health is required.

Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy involves the assessment and treatment of movement deficits as well as increasing a Participant’s capacity to engage through exercise and motion.

Physiotherapists are experts in the structure of the human body and its movement. They work with people of all ages to treat a broad range of health conditions including sports injuries, musculoskeletal conditions, and chronic health conditions like diabetes, obesity, osteoarthritis, stroke, and other disease.

Exercise Physiology

Exercise physiology interventions aim to prevent or manage acute, sub-acute or chronic disease or injury, and help in restoring a Participant’s optimal physical function, health or wellness. Exercise physiologists specialise in clinical exercise interventions for people who may be a risk of developing, or have existing, medical conditions and injuries.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists are skilled in many areas, including rehabilitation, pain management, driving assessments and paediatrics. They help Participants to identify interests and goals, manage daily routines at home and in the community, modify daily tasks to make them easier to perform, and recommend activities that can be participated effectively in.

Speech Pathology

Speech pathologists study, diagnose and treat communication disorders, including difficulties with speaking, listening, understanding language, reading, writing, social skills, stuttering and using voice. They work with Participants who have difficulty communicating due to a variety of diagnoses. They can also play a role in assessing and treating Participants who have difficulty swallowing food and drink safely.

Psychology

Psychologists are experts in human behaviour who can help people change the way they think, feel, behave and react. They study the brain, memory, learning and processes around human development. Psychology can help individuals, families, groups and organisations.

Social Work

Social Workers support Participants to make change in their lives to improve their personal and social wellbeing. This happens by identifying issues that require change and connecting people with support (such as secure housing or family therapy). Social Workers have knowledge of human behaviour and development, life cycle stages, families and social networks, and disability and health(including mental health).

Dietitian

Dietitians have a broad understanding of the importance in building the right diet, and how it can significantly improve the health and well-being of the Participant. They work with people to improve their eating disorders, avoidant and restrictive food intake disorders, chronic disease management, meal preparation, cooking, meal planning, nutritional support and so much more. Dietitians can assist Participants in improving your nutritional health and thrive to be the healthiest version of themselves.
