Update and News at Paediatric Physiotherapy Centre

Hi There.

It has been a busy 6 months this year.

Students

We will continue to offer work experience placements for students of local schools.  We will have Katheryn starting on the 25th June from Buckley Park College and then Aziza will return in the September school holidays.

We continue to have many requests from overseas students for a placement at Paediatric Physiotherapy Centre and we try to accommodate.

Some of you will remember Sarah Hartel who was from Germany.  She spent about 6 months at Paediatric Physiotherapy Centre.  Her goal was to gain experience to work in the paediatric field back in Germany and her dream goal has come true.  She was recently appointed as a Paediatric Physiotherapist  at a school.  Congratulations Sarah!!

NDIS

We have been steadily writing a mountain of letters of support and requests for our clients to access funds for therapy and equipment through NDIS.   This has proven to be about 98% successful in the first instance.  We have had only 2 coordinators come back for further justification regarding equipment.

As a physiotherapist I can request NDIS  funds for an assessment by an Occupational Therapist for in home modifications, car modifications or in home assistive lifting devices. The request will eventually go through the NDIS stream of SWEP which must be submitted by an Occupational Therapist.

Additional building works

We are soon to have the stair railing lengthened and tactile tiles placed at the bottom and top of the stairs as an additional requirement for accessible compliance.

Holidays

Mary-Anne, Physiotherapist, will be on leave over the July school holidays.  Nurlan, receptionist,  will still be answering the diverted phones but will only come into the office as needed when Pragashni, Speech Pathologist, is in. If you need to come into the office to buy supplies etc, please call first to make sure the building will be opened.
