We support clients and their carers with navigating the NDIS. We can conduct functional capacity assessments (social skills, activities of daily living, cognitive, sensory profiles as well an informal observations) to determine eligibility for NDIS funding and provide progress reports to apply for a change of circumstance or an upcoming plan review.

THERAPEUTIC LISTENING PROGRAM

Listening plays a vital role in the sensory integration process. Both research and clinical experience have shown that using sound-based interventions for clients with sensory processing difficulties can increase treatment effectiveness. We deliver evidenced based listening programs that help people retrain their brains to be able to cope with noisy environments, listen in class, sit in a restaurant, hold a conversation and integrate their sense of hearing better into their daily lives.

We provide assessment, therapy, return to work and driving support for both injured workers and employers. We review return to work plans and advise and consult with doctors, insurers, clients, carers and employers to ensure the best outcomes are achieved.
