This holistic approach uses creative and fluid supports to generate attainable outcomes for our clients with a disability, empowering them to achieve their goals. Our clients get the opportunity to have choice in the way they want to be supported, thus gaining greater independence and control over their lives.
The team offer a wide array of support and specialised therapies tailored to the needs of the individual and their family. Recognised as one of the market leaders for supporting people with complex needs. We offer a number of vital supports from music and occupational therapy to positive behaviour support as well as self-directed services.
We are excited about expanding the breadth of choices on offer for current and future clients, connecting them to the types of support they need. Our goal is to offer more programs that utilise cutting edge technology and give clients an opportunity to gain tangible real-life improvements including offering educational programs which tailor to the needs of people with disability. We also have more effective physiotherapy and hydrotherapy services underway and additional equipment that can service the specific needs of our clients.
Music Therapy, Empowering People through the Rhythm and Melody of Song
Roland, Debbie and Harley attend music therapy weekly, and over the past 3 years have benefited enormously from it. They have all made extraordinary progress towards their personal development goals and have each been able to achieve considerable outcomes.
Roland is a young gentleman that seeks autonomy and engagement with others, and through music therapy he has been able to make choices and express himself in a positive way. Music therapy has empowered Roland to feel competent by providing opportunities for successful experiences, which is a phenomenal achievement for him.
Debbie has been participating in music therapy for over 3 years and has made great progress communicating with the outside world. While Debbie is non-verbal, she has been able to learn to sing on cue, finding her voice and doing it with the biggest smile you have ever seen. Debbie’s hard work and progress show the great benefits of music therapy.
Harley comes from a musical family so it is no surprise that he has taken a shine to music therapy. During the sessions Harley is able to showcase his passion for music while connecting with others. Harley is able to build his social interaction skills through music therapy while also stimulating his creativity to improvise through solo play and song parody.
Roland, Debbie and Harley’s stories are examples of the amazing achievements our clients make when given the opportunity and with the appropriate support from our Specialist Services team.
