What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapists treat and assist people living with disability, illness or injury to develop, recover, maintain or improve daily living skills through therapeutic activities. Their focus is promoting health and wellbeing by enabling people to participate in everyday living activities to the best of their ability.

This can include adapting tasks through home modifications, assistive technology or vehicle modifications to ensure ease when performing daily tasks and to best empower a participant to engage from a higher level of independence.

What does this mean for you?

Most NDIS participants receive some level of treatment, whether this be for a yearly assessment to gauge where you’re at currently and what supports are needed to best assist you to live as comfortably independent as possible or whether you receive more frequent hands-on therapy and support. Occupational Therapy is goal focused and can present you with helpful tools and strategies that can improve your day-to-day life.
