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.

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)

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