The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support for people that have a disability, their families, and the people that care for them. The cover is provided by the scheme where the injury to a person requires occupational therapy (OT). There are several providers that offer the NDIS OT Kalgoorlie area that is registered through the scheme to provide occupational therapy services.
These services can include functional assessment, equipment prescription, neurological and physical rehabilitation, cognitive rehabilitation, support training, manual handling assessment for mobility issues, rehabilitation, and care plans, and complex case management for patients with specific requirements.
Occupational therapy is usually provided to people that have suffered an injury as a result of a workplace accident, vehicle accident, or medical malpractice. In cases where they are entitled to compensation for the injuries they have suffered, occupational therapy services may be part of the settlement that they receive.
