NDIS Occupational Therapy
Occupational Therapists 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 therapeutic services, to help with everyday activities that people do as individuals, in families and within their communities.
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 assessment 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.
Occupational Therapy Helping Children
At Connect2Care, our mission is to help children with disabilities live as independently and capably as possible in society. Our NDIS approved Occupational Therapists are experienced in helping children, from infants to adolescents, and will address the individual needs of their client.
We support children with a wide range of conditions, in areas of fine and gross motor development, social participation, school readiness, and daily living skills, including dressing and feeding. We also provide support with behaviour management.
Our Occupational Therapists work closely with children, their parents, and caregivers, both at home and in the school environment, to help children achieve both their developmental, social and learning goals.

Our team of Occupational Therapists can support people in their personal environments to help build skills in the settings they most need. Our team can visit schools, childcare centres, homes and workplaces.
Centre-Based Occupational Therapy Services
In addition to our mobile support, we also welcome clients to come into our Melbourne, Brisbane or Sydney centres for appointments. Our open and bright clinical spaces provide a safe and meaningful session with our Occupational Therapists.
At our centres, we can use various pieces of equipment to help our clients reach their potential. This could include sensory equipment, kitchenettes with alternate forms of cutlery and crockery, or even different forms of technology. For our paediatric clients, we could engage with a variety of toys or games to ensure that therapy is not only beneficial but also interactive and fun.
Why Choose Our NDIS Approved Occupational Therapists
At Connect2Care, our Occupational Therapists set meaningful and client-centred goals that aim to ensure people can actively partake in the life they want.
Our Therapists look at what limits their clients from being able to achieve their everyday goals and break down the process to build their skills and facilitate the steps required to achieve those goals and help them make positive changes in their lives.
We embrace a holistic approach to allied health support. Our Occupational Therapists also work alongside our Speech Pathologists, Physiotherapists, Psychologists, Exercise Physiologists, Allied Health Assistants and Dietitians as required, to help our clients achieve their goals.
Connect2Care is proud to enable our clients to achieve their independence across many areas, some of which include financial management, meal preparation, shopping, community access and mobility, health maintenance and care for others.
We value one’s right to choice and control. Our team will work with clients and their loved ones to find the right Occupational Therapist for their individual needs. We value quality services and open, transparent communication and will strive to support our clients through the therapeutic journey, navigating the NDIS and advocating for them.
Occupational Therapeutic goals are meaningful to ensure individuals can lead a fulfilling life.
