NDIS Occupational Therapy for Adults
Approachable, Strategic & Inspiring Occupational Therapy Tailored for Adults
If you’re looking for NDIS Occupational Therapy sessions, we recommend finding a clinic that will address your personal goals and a clinician with whom you feel great rapport!
Our team of approachable and thoughtful occupational therapists will meet you where you’re at in a friendly & inspiring way- forget the clinical jargon. Our expertise are making practical solutions.
Occupational Therapy (OT) supports you shape healthy habits to overcome obstacles or barriers related to your medical condition or personal circumstances.
“Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.”
If a life-changing event (like a stroke or a car accident) or a chronic medical condition forced you to do things differently, we will collaborate with you and your case manager to help you understand how your diagnosis interferes with things that you enjoy doing, set goals, and help to keep you focused to enjoy your journey under the new circumstances.
And guess what?
Unlike most clinics offering NDIS services, we focus solely on adults.
This is because we believe that successful therapy needs to be affirming for you! Attending a paediatric clinic that does anything and everything may not build your confidence.
This is why Voice Science chooses to focus on providing support solely for adults.
This lets us deliver approachable and inspiring sessions.
At Voice Science™ you’ll be met with amazing resources, relevant strategies and most importantly, clinicians that really care.

Using your NDIS Speech Therapy Funds
Choosing where to use your NDIS funding is an important decision, and at Voice Science, we are proud to assist you on your pathway towards your goals.
We align our session fees with the current NDIS speech therapy rates, which can be found here. These are subject to change according to any updates from the NDIS.
The NDIS recommended hourly rate applies to assessment and therapy sessions, as well as time dedicated to NDIS goal review reports and extended care team meetings.
Strategies for NDIS Clients from Linguistic & Culturally Diverse Backgrounds
A defining feature of our NDIS occupational therapy for adults is our extensive experience in working with linguistically and culturally diverse clients. We will always advocate for our multilingual clients and troubleshoot strategies to reduce any language barriers that may be arising. This is an area of our work that is deeply aligned to our values at Voice Science. All our clinicians are bilingual.
Our team are well supported and not overloaded with a massive calendar of unmanageable appointments. This allows us the luxury of delivering you the detailed and affirming care that they are entitled to ensure a high-quality Occupational Therapy service.
NDIS Occupational therapy can often feel less tailored, especially if you are working with a service provider that sees both kids and adults. But our focus on premium adult communication care sets us apart from other clinics.
We also regularly participate in professional development opportunities and keep a close eye on research that addresses our clients’ occupational difficulties so that we can serve you with the best practice approaches for maximal outcomes.
Through our assessment, we also aim to understand how Occupational Therapy fits into your allied health team, so that we can consider you as a whole and fully appreciate how best to assist you.
We’re committed to understanding your personal goals and challenges, so that we can support you first and foremost as person, not simply address problems or difficulties in isolation.
