The role:

As an Occupational Therapist with our client, you will have the opportunity to deliver person-centred, evidence-based assessment, clinical management, and intervention for individuals with cognitive, physical, or psychosocial disabilities.

Your expertise will be essential in assessing the need for modifications to home and other environments to support the developmental, intellectual, or physical disabilities of your clients.

You will provide a range of intervention strategies to address daily living activities, functional performance, fine motor skills, motor planning, sensory processing, and more. Your interventions will support participants in improving their overall quality of life and achieving greater independence.

Additionally, you will assess the equipment needs of NDIS participants related to daily activities such as sleeping, sitting, safe transport, and personal care. Your ability to identify and recommend appropriate equipment will ensure participants can safely and effectively perform daily tasks. In all your duties, you will demonstrate a commitment to excellence, collaboration, and the values of respect, integrity, and resilience.
