Occupational therapy on the Sunshine Coast

How can Occupational Therapy help you?

A neurological Occupational Therapist works with people who have neurological conditions to help improve their ability to perform everyday activities such as dressing, eating and grooming, as well as helping them to participate in tasks they enjoy. 

We have a trusted network of Occupational Therapists we work with and can provide you with recommendations.

How does an Occupational Therapist do this?

Individualised treatment plans

Like neurological physiotherapists, neurological OTs work with you to develop individual treatment plans to help you achieve your goals. They use various tools to help you improve your physical, cognitive and emotional abilities.


This may include exercises for your body or brain, activities to improve memory and problem-solving skills, education and strategies to help you manage daily tasks. 

Specialised equipment

They may also recommend adaptive or specialised equipment such as modified cutlery, shower chairs, pressure cushions and wheelchairs.

Functional Capacity Assessments

Many NDIS participants require a functional capacity assessment. We partner closely with experienced Occupational Therapists who can provide you with a high-quality assessment and report.

Do I need an Occupational Therapist and a Physiotherapist?

OTs and physiotherapists are complementary in what they do because they look at the same problem from a different angle. We believe you’ll benefit the most when your Occupational Therapist and Physiotherapist work together to achieve the best outcome. 

A true partnership

For example, if you’re finding it hard to transfer into and out of the car, your OT and physio can work together to come up with the best solution. 

Limited mobility is another example. Many people with neurological conditions can walk short distances but find it difficult to walk long distances in the community. 

Your physiotherapist can work on helping you walk more safely and easily and work on your endurance, while an Occupational Therapist may look at options for assistive devices to help you mobilise in the community.

Want to know more about Occupational Therapy?

We work closely with a team of trusted Occupational Therapists in the local area. If you have your own Occupational Therapist, we would love to work with them to help you to achieve your goals. 

If you don’t have an OT, we have a trusted network of Occupational Therapists in the community whom we work closely with. We can help you find the right Occupational Therapist based on your specific needs.
