NDIS Occupational Therapy
Our NDIS occupational therapy workers help to facilitate independence in all areas of one’s life.
At Connect2Care, our NDIS-approved Occupational Therapists work alongside both clients and their referrers to provide excellent and innovative occupational therapy services, to help with everyday activities that people do as individuals, in families and within their communities.
How our NDIS occupational therapists can help
We cater to a wide range of physical and psychosocial needs across the lifespan. Our therapists consider a person’s strengths and aspirations to create meaningful and relevant goals. They provide assessments and recommendations to optimise a person’s daily independent living skills.
This can include support with self-care, looking after the place where you live, home modifications, getting out and about, finding or staying in work or education, or participating in social and leisure activities.
Our occupational therapists can identify what supports, or hinders, you and help with solutions to enable you to participate in everyday life. Please read on to learn more about our NDIS occupational therapy services, or connect with our friendly, welcoming team to learn more.

At Connect2Care, our Occupational Therapists set meaningful and client-centred goals that aim to ensure people can actively partake in the life they want.
