Occupational therapy is a client centred health profession concerned with promoting health and well being. The goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life as independently as possible. Occupational therapists work with people to enhance their ability to engage in the activities they want to or by modifying the environment to better support their needs.
The NDIA are providing funding to consumers to ascertain the persons support needs. The therapist creates reports that inform the NDIA of the persons unmet support needs and ongoing requirements to stay independent.
An occupational therapist will also complete assistive technology reports, produce skill building plans and come to you at your home.
