What is the difference between disability and ability? In terms of mastering daily living tasks, realising greater independence and enjoying a rich, rewarding life, many limitations and challenges can be overcome or significantly reduced with the use of personally-matched assistive technology (AT).
While this term is often associated with home aids such as ramps and rails, specialised furniture and mobility devices, AT can encompass everything from communication boards and speech production devices to modified bicycles and sporting equipment. AT opens up possibilities.
Our NDIS-registered occupational therapists are experts in assessing each participant’s unique needs, identifying items that can help them to reach their potential, and facilitating the process from application to training in safe, effective use of new devices. AT equals ‘I can’.
If you’re an NDIS participant or carer or friend of someone who has goals that may be realised with the right assistance, we invite you to contact our team or visit our new website for more information on our NDIS services. #keepsoaring
