ACCESS is a multidisciplinary team of Allied Health Professionals including Occupational Therapy, Speech & Language Pathology, Physiotherapy and Social Work, enabling us to provide a full range of specialist clinical services.
These include cognitive assessment and retraining, assessment and treatment of communication disorders, psychosocial assessment and counselling for the client and their family, behaviour support programs, return to work programs, functional assessments, driving assessment and remediation, physical therapy, study skills assistance and independent living programs. We have strong network relationships with Medical, Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology practitioners as well as with other rehabilitation providers in the public and private sectors.
ACCESS provides experienced case management to ensure a coordinated, tailored approach to rehabilitation. Using our thorough knowledge of the rehabilitation system we offer informed and effective liaison between the client, fund managers, service providers, medical and treating staff. Our case managers are appreciative of the need to be accessible and goal oriented. Case management services can be provided at any or all stages of a person’s rehabilitation program.
ACCESS staff are all approved case managers with the Lifetime Care and Support Authority. Our clinicians are accredited as FIM and weeFIM assessors and are trained in comprehensive Care Needs Assessments and PCANS-2 Paediatric Assessments. We regularly participate in professional development (including training offered through the Lifetime Care & Support Scheme) to remain current with best practise. Our treatment programs and case management services reflect the philosophy of person-centred practise and aim to maximise independence, participation, and quality of life.
