How does the Therapy Assistant program work?

  • Your supervising Key Worker will create a ‘Therapy Assistant Plan’ with goals and strategies based on your child’s NDIS plan
  • Frequency of sessions can be weekly, fortnightly or monthly. With sessions occurring in either clinic or outreach (home, school, kinder, childcare or in the community).
  • The first appointment will consist of a training session with your Therapy Assistant, and time to discuss and plan strategies with the supervising Key Worker
  • Therapeutic goals are reviewed regularly to ensure continued progress and strategies continue to support your child’s needs
  • Case consultations between supervising Key Worker and Therapy Assistant are billable to ensure maintenance of tailored and high quality sessions
  • Therapy Assistant Plans are reviewed on the school holidays as needed; this may include a meeting together with the family, supervising Key Worker and Therapy Assistant
