Your therapist can also provide additional information during the initial assessment.

We provide services under NDIS & ECA for plan-managed and self-managed participants.

Plan-Managed: Invoices are sent directly to the plan manager for direct payment through NDIS funding.

Self-Managed: Invoices are sent to the participant's family and reimbursement can be claimed through your NDIS portal after payment.

Our therapists are very experienced in providing therapy, reports and other documentation for NDIS participants. Therefore, we can provide assistance with NDIS applications and plan reassessments to support funding for assistive technology and services. Services under NDIS funding will be in accordance to NDIS guidelines and a service agreement will be required to be signed before commencing.

Please contact us for further information.
