National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

Providing individualised support for those with disability and their families. Optimal Living Therapy is a registered NDIS provider for Occupational Therapy.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding support to approved participants in order to help them achieve their goals and help them work towards increased independence, participation in work/education and community involvement. Optimal Living Therapy is a registered NDIS provider and provides service to NDIS, plan managed and self-managed participants.

Optimal Living Therapy work closely with our clients to ensure their NDIS plan encompasses all of the therapy services they require to help them achieve their goals. The NDIS is being progressively rolled out across Western Australia. You can view the rollout schedule here. 

Our NDIS services

OT services available to participants under the NDIS include:

  • Functional assessments including those required prior to your NDIS planning meeting
  • Therapy sessions in your home that are structured to help you achieve the goals that are important to you.
  • Prescription of Assistive technology (eg. equipment, adaptive aids and home modifications). We are experienced in the prescription of equipment modifications and technology from the simple through to the complex.
  • We provide services to those with an existing NDIS plan as well as support participants who are in the planning phase for when NDIS rolls out in their area, or those beginning a new NDIS plan.
  • We ensure all your therapy needs are identified before the commencement of your plan – this minimises the chance of needing a plan review to seek funding for items not identified during the initial planning phase.

NDIS and Specialist Disability Accomodation (SDA)

One of the supports that may be funded for some participants in the NDIS is Specialist Disability Accomodation (SDA). SDA is purpose built accomodation for people that require a specialist housing solution to promote their independence. SDA funding is only provided to a small proportion of NDIS participants who have very high support needs, extreme functional impairment or who meet other specific eligibility criteria. To read more about eligibility criteria please see these resources.

Optimal Living Therapy can help with the NDIS application process in regards to Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA). As Livable Housing Assessors who are very familiar with SDA requirements we can provide invaluable knowledge to guide you through this complex process.

What is SDA?

Specialist Disability Accomodation is housing that has been specially designed for people who are unable to live in mainstream housing due to their extreme functional impairment or very high support needs.

For accomodation to be suitable for SDA participants, it must comply with certain standards and characteristics that meet participants’ needs and the nature of their disability.

We see only possibilities and support people to act without limitations - by challenging the speed of progress and shedding light on the possibilities for change.
