NDIS and occupational therapy
The NDIS provides funding for Occupational Therapy services that help participants to improve their independence and community involvement.
Many people with disability can benefit from occupational therapy services.
But is it covered by the NDIS?
It is! Occupational Therapy is often included in a NDIS participant’s plan, and can be in either the Core Supports or Capacity Building sections.
At CareAbout, we only work with allied health providers who are customer focussed and have robust processes in place.
Certified Providers with Availability
All providers we work with are NDIS certified and have immediate availability.
Your happiness is our success
If the relationship between you and the provider doesn’t last, we don’t get paid. So we make sure we only recommend providers who will do a good job.
What is occupational therapy?
Occupational therapy is holistic treatment that aims to help people engage fully in life. This can include recovery from injury, assistance with daily tasks such as personal care, through to socialising and engaging in the community
What is the difference between occupational therapy and physiotherapy?
These two professions are often confused, as each of them provide hands-on rehabilitative work to help their clients perform everyday tasks as independently as possible.
One of the big differences between Occupational Therapy (OT) and Physiotherapy is that OT focusses on helping clients to perform all daily tasks and improving their independence, whereas physiotherapy is focussed on improving physical movement only.
This means that OT’s provide services that help with much more than just physical movement.
