Helping You Reach Your Full Potential

NDIS funded occupational therapy in Far North Queensland

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapy supports individuals and families to do the things that bring meaning, purpose, and value to life.
An “occupation” is more than a job! It’s any activity that matters in your life. Including what you...

  • Need to do - eating, sleeping, dressing, bathing

  • Want to do – making friends, learning, and activities for fun

  • Are expected to do – work, looking after your room or home, managing your money well, or managing medication

As an organisation focusing on adults with developmental, learning, and psychosocial disabilities, we want you to do as much as you can for yourself. This might be catching buses or taxis, getting a job, preparing something to eat meal prep, or improving strategies within teaching your circle of support how best to support you - your way.

Direct Therapy for Skill Building

We create a custom plan dedicated to your specific goals. We meet you exactly where you are now and take steps forward at your pace. It’s not just therapy sessions, it’s a relationship.
Our programs help you:
  • Build confidence in daily life skills such as cooking, using public transport, or grocery shopping, & budgeting

  • Social Skills to meet, make and keep friends

  • Get the right equipment including wheelchairs, beds, recline/lift chairs, commode chairs, and lifting equipment.

  • Prepare for a new job or stay in your current one

Get started with Propel Therapy near the beginning of your NDIS plan period so that we have the time for you to achieve your goals with no time pressure.

We complete sessions in your home and in the community because we want to:

  • Practice skills where they will be used

  • Reduce stress and overwhelm related to unfamiliar locations
  • Make recommendations based on what your home is really like
Direct therapy services are completed by either an OT or our Therapy Assistants. The program is always supervised by an OT to ensure national standards and practice guidelines are being met, and each client is always under the overall care of an OT.

To learn more about what to expect during an assessment

Initial Assessment for Gathering Information and Making Goals

Each of our assessments is in-depth and customised to the individual.

Due to the comprehensive nature of our assessments, the turnaround time for the full report is about 4 weeks from the initial assessment.

Assessments we provide:

  • Functional Capacity Assessments (FCA)

  • Specialist Disability Accommodation Assessments (SDA)
  • Independent Living Assessment, Housing Needs (SIL)
  • Equipment Assessment (Assistive Technology)

An assessment is so much more than applying for additional funding, it’s the first step in a journey to skill development.
