Lifehacks for Success Club (independent living skills)

Many carers feel like they need an extra pair of hands to carry the load and help their young person grow and develop into all they can be. They want their young person to experience success in the home, at their place of education, and out in the community. Succeed provides therapy assistants where you need them to help young people to achieve their goals.

Why see a therapy assistant?

Neurodiverse young people can benefit from individual support to reach their next stage of development. Busy or stressed parents, coaches or teachers can find it hard to provide the additional support they need. Our therapy assistants are half the cost of a therapist, yet have often undergone the majority of a therapy degree.

What does a therapy assistant do?

Our Therapy Assistants (Allied Health Assistants) implement therapy programs in the community where it matters most. This includes in educational environments, at home or out and about. They work under the direction of our Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist, Exercise Physiologist and Nutritionist to assist young people to achieve their goals.

How it works:

1. A therapist assesses/reviews the young person in the environment where they would like assistance and recommend strategies to assist

2. The Therapy Assistant helps with putting the strategies into place, wherever they are needed.

3. In addition, the parent, teacher or therapy assistant can take video footage for the therapist to review, for additional therapy planning.
