S.P.E.E.C.H. can support families who are self-managed or plan managed with the NDIS. Goals and strategies are discussed with the family and/or client to ensure our therapy sessions align with and support the NDIS goals. We can provide the necessary documentation for eligibility access reports or plan reviews.
Therapy assistants work under the supervision of a qualified therapist. The therapist designs a therapy plan that is implemented by the therapy assistant. The range of goals and activities that an assistant can support may be broader and more flexible than a therapist is able to provide in the clinic. Assistants can provide services in the clinic, the home or in community settings. Assistants may also provide support to group programs. Therapy assistants can be students studying speech pathology or may have a Cert IV in Allied Health Assistance. The NDIS rate for Allied Health Assistants is applied to this service. Travel fees are also charged for off-site services.
