Your NDIS expert

Therapy assistant (Level 2)

Therapy assistants are the next best thing to a fully-fledged therapist. These fabulous guys (and girls) can work alongside your child to implement training programs, practice skills, and kick some serious NDIS goal butts. Oh, and did I mention they can be more available? If that isn’t music to our sick-of-waiting-lists ears. 

Let's delve into how a level 2 therapy assistant can align with NDIS goals for participants and their families:

1. Flexibility with Structure: Level 2 therapy assistants have the chops to work unsupervised, but always within the confines of a plan set by a therapist. This means they can adapt and respond to the needs of the participant while staying on track with the therapy plan.

2. Frequent Engagement: Their broader availability often means more frequent sessions. Regular interactions can reinforce learning, ensuring your child steadily moves towards their goals.

3. Tailored Sessions: Level 2 therapy assistants come equipped with a deeper understanding of therapeutic techniques. They can personalise sessions, ensuring your child feels comfortable and engaged.

4. Valuable Feedback: They're often the ones at the coalface, observing and engaging. This means they can provide invaluable feedback to the primary therapist, helping refine strategies as needed.

5. Cost-Effective Approach: Given their ability to work independently, Level 2 therapy assistants might offer a cost-effective solution. You can maximise your NDIS plan, ensuring you get the most out of every dollar.

6. Continuity of Care: Their involvement ensures that the momentum from the primary therapist's sessions continues without a hitch. It's like having a reliable co-pilot ensuring you don't stray off course.

7. Fostering Independence: They play a crucial role in translating the skills learnt in therapy to real-world settings. With their support, participants can confidently practice and apply their newfound skills in their daily lives.

So, when you're navigating the NDIS and all the choices that come with it, remember the potential of Level 2 therapy assistants. With them in your corner, those NDIS goals might just be closer than you think.
