All Concentric Rehabilitation Centre’s employ occupational therapists (OT) to work within our multidisciplinary team
NDIS Occupational Therapy
They deliver treatments which maximise functional capacity, independence and wellbeing of people living with disabilities as well as making it easier to complete daily tasks.
OT is particularly important for those living with disabilities, who may need help with:
- Improving their cognitive skills such as problem solving, memory and attention
- Self-care e.g dressing, bathing, eating and drinking
- Improving their fine/gross motor skills e.g. walking, writing, balance and sitting
- Sensory processing and visual perception
- Musculoskeletal rehabilitation
If you are an individual living with a disability and require help with assistive technology, modifications around your home, improved daily living or capacity building, our occupational therapist can help you.
After your initial assessment with our OT, we will coordinate with you, our multidisciplinary team and your carer to assist in developing a treatment plan and strategy that is best suited to your needs.

How does an occupational therapist assess you?
Occupational therapists use a variety of industry-recognised tests to assess their patients. For example, they may use an Assessment of Motor and Process Skills (AMPS) test to assess your motor and processing skills. From there, your OT can form an idea of how you’re likely to manage with everyday tasks around your home and make recommendations for maintaining your independence.
After performing your assessment, your occupational therapist may make recommendations for tools and adaptations. For example, if you’re struggling to access your home, they may recommend the use of a ramp or rails. They can also assess your suitability for various mobility aids that’ll allow you to maintain your independence. Wherever necessary, your occupational therapy team can discuss your plans with your family and others who are caring for you too.
