Therapy Assistants at The Geelong Neuro Centre
Our team of therapy assistants are fun and energetic. Our therapy assistants play an invaluable role in your therapy journey.
Therapy assistants work in collaboration with your therapy team to implement a tailored treatment plan to translate the skills learnt in therapy to daily life at home, in the community, in the workplace, school or the clinic at the Geelong Neuro Centre. A therapy assistant can create opportunities to increase intensity and frequency of therapy and progression towards your goals.
Your therapy program is directed by your therapist. Your therapist will work closely with your therapy assistant and provide ongoing guidance and support and make adjustments to the program when required.
To ensure you get the most out of your therapy program we ensure our therapy assistants have a health background with the majority of our therapy assistants being health university students.
Therapy assistant programs can be funded using your NDIS funding. Therapy assistants are funded under therapeutic supports/ improved daily living. This is the same budget that funds your therapy appointments.
