Occupational Therapy

From getting ready for the day, using public transport, managing relationships, or finding employment, expect our team to build your skills and equip you to do the things you want, your way.

How Occupational Therapy Delivers More

When you work with Everyday Independence our occupational therapists support you in your community, as part of a broader team that may include speech pathologists, physiotherapists, positive behaviour practitioners, and habit coaches.

Because the best way to deliver positive change is to look at your whole life and engage a team of practitioners with the understanding and skills that are vital to helping you make the changes that matter to you.

Occupational Therapy Quality of Life Outcomes may Include

  • Improved confidence and capabilities to make decisions independently
  • Exploring sensory preferences, especially those least, and most preferred
  • Assistive technologies to increase independence and make daily living easier
  • Improving social skills and connections with other people through friendship
  • Enjoying hobbies and interests to improve wellbeing and mental health
  • Building resilience to deal with life challenges to ‘bounce back’ from problems.
  • Strategies and support to learn new skills
  • Making environments safer and more accessible to maximise independence
  • Advice on wheelchair seating, and trialling equipment
  • Home modifications to move around home easily
  • Support to transitions to school, university or a new job
  • Meaningful paid or volunteer work or career development.

We’re Ready to Get you Started
