Supporting People the Everyday Way

People living with disabilities are often underestimated, and barriers in their surroundings or the attitudes and actions of others can reduce the opportunities they have to participate fully in the community.

To support people to reduce those barriers so they can live the life they want to, we work under the social model of disability. We call this the Everyday Way.

We support people to reduce those barriers and encourage people with a disability, their families and the wider community to challenge their beliefs about disability and to set higher expectations of what they can achieve.

Some of the ways we do this include:

  • Putting the person at the centre of their therapy, focusing on what they can do, building on their strengths and interests
  • Getting to know them and understanding what is important to them so we can bring their plan to life with achievable steps
  • Delivering therapy where they spend their time in their everyday life and use their daily routine to practice their new skills
  • Providing support to other significant people in their life, they can support them in achieving their goals
  • Working as a team with other therapists so that the person receives the right support at the right time to fully participate in the community.

We believe that every person has the right to make choices about their lives and to do the things their way.

The Everyday Way empowers people to live meaningful and fulfilling lives. We have seen great outcomes for people when they realise their potential and work towards specific, measurable goals.
