NDIS and Occupational Therapy

NDIS registered Occupational Therapists Enhance OT offer home based services to clients in the adult disability sector. Everyone has different goals and we are pleased to work with you to build a sustainable OT plan of service.

 

What are your goals?

For some, this may be a better home environment, more supports or easier access to the bathroom or back yard. For others, it might be learning to catch a bus, meeting a group of friends at the movies or cooking a meal.

An OT will look at all of your goals and work through a plan that can include family, friends or formal supports.

An OT will look at all the things you can do and strategize a treatment plan to address those things that limit your daily activities.
