Assessments



A holistic assessment is often important to truly understand what is going on for the individual. Our Occupational Therapists can complete a range of standardised and non-standardised assessments depending on the individual client’s needs.

Intervention



As Occupational Therapists our interventions are grounded within occupations, this means that they are activity based. Whether we are modifying the activity that is currently a challenge, the environment or the tools that are used for that activity, or working on skill development for the individual, our therapists will ensure that the intervention sits within the context of the client’s life. Therapy should not be ‘work’. It should not be another thing that a family or individual needs to make time for.  As Occupational Therapists, our team will work with the client and their support network to ensure that the strategies provided are easily integrated into your lives.

Supporting Caregivers/Educational Facilities



Our Occupational Therapists can help you interpret and implement any recommendations/reports you have received from a specialist. We are also able to support you in your learning/understanding of the client’s challenges. 

Groups



Work towards your goals in a group environment where the program is developed with specific consideration of the group’s needs. While being supported on a particular focus area(s), the benefits of attending a group program include opportunities to connect and interact with others. It also can be a more cost-effective therapy option. Our current group programs include the tOTal Potential Holiday Program for children aged over 5 years.


Presentations/Professional Development



The Potential Ability Group offers a number of presentation topics. We can tailor make a presentation package based on the groups needs and experience. The length, location and topic of the presentation can be altered to suit your needs. A great opportunity to increase your understanding and support achievement of therapy outcomes at home or in your work environment for professional development.


Information Sessions for Caregivers



Tailor made for the caregivers of our clients. We offer information sessions usually based around a common topic of interest. The information session will provide you with some background information and the remainder of the session will provide practical strategies in relation to the topic.

Reports



We understand that reports are required for a variety of reasons; sometimes it is necessary to have written information to keep track of who you have in your support team and what their involvement has been, and sometimes it is important to have a report to share recommendations or advocate for funding. We believe that all reports should be informative whilst being easy to read, understand and follow. If you would prefer an alternative means of communication such as a summary phone call from your therapist, then that is an option also.
