Occupational Therapy

Promoting Independence with Therapy.

Occupational therapists, often referred to as OTs, specialise in helping people with cognitive or physical disabilities to live as independently as possible in all areas of their lives. Here at AHP, our NDIS registered OTs act in advisory or consultative roles to manage and modify the daily activities of disabled people to promote independence and self-care. They work closely with participants to design a treatment plan and make recommendations to safely accomplish their individual objectives by identifying factors that may negatively affect their daily routine.

The aim of our occupational therapy services is to ensure that people with a disability successfully adapt to changes in their everyday lives and safely overcome practical problems in their condition. Our occupational therapists have the expert knowledge needed to achieve this and will work collaboratively with the participant to learn about the individual and home tasks they find very difficult to accomplish. They will then ultimately prescribe ways to help the participant accomplish these tasks in a safer, easier, and timely manner. This facilitates a feeling of accomplishment, thereby enhancing self-confidence.

AHP’s occupational therapists assist with personalised evaluations and recommendations in practical tasks and daily activities, including:

  • Recommending modifications to the participant's home
  • Assessment of disability equipment needs
  • Workplace adaptations
  • Paediatric services
    • Sensory Processing
    • Motor Skills
    • Self-care: eating, dressing, showering, toileting, grooming
    • Emotional Regulation
    • Play
    • Executive Functioning
    • Attention
    • Visual Perception
    • Handwriting
  • Rehabilitation and more

AHP DHC testimonials

Bradley Support Coordinator

Just wanted to give some feedback and say Thank you for organising the OT for Jake. We met with Janet last week and she was lovely – Jake really took to her and enjoyed the activities they did together. At first he was a little shy and hid under the table but she didn’t take long to coax him out and start working with him. She was very good with him.

Just wanted to feedback that Anna is on board with a couple of my participants now, easy to work with, great communication, prompt and competent supports – thank you Anna!

Well done and Thank you very much!

I would also like to thank Pauline for her ongoing work. From what I have discussed, Pauline has been so important to the participant’s adjustment to supports and recovery.

Ruby Support Coordinator

Sarah and her Support worker were extremely impressed with your Clinician whilst he was assessing Sarah and her needs.

They said he was so polite and very thorough throughout the whole time he was there.

Sarah felt very comfortable in his presence and wanted me to let you know how impressed she was.

Andrea Support Coordinator

Thanks so much for your prompt response, looking forward to working with such a great company with such great communication and easy referral systems in place.

Bonnie Support Coordinator

I would like to express my gratitude and say thank you to you and your team for the amazing work you guys done for my participant.

I really appreciate the effort you guys put into my participant especially on a short notice with the housing assessment. The report is one of the best I and my team ever seen. It was really clear and concise and made my job in writing the report so much easier.

I would like to shout out to Daniel for the amazing work he did especially with a very tough participant even when she was screaming at him and kicking him out of the house due to her schizophrenia.
