Capacity building is a type of NDIS funded support that helps to build your independence and skills to help you pursue your goals.   There are many categories of capacity building that can be accessed, however the most relevant to OT is improved daily living.

 

Improved daily living involves assessment, training or therapy to help increase your skills, independence and community participation.

 

Our Occupational Therapists can support you to develop or increase your independence in completing safe and necessary skills surrounding daily activities such as:

  • Dressing

  • Showering

  • Cleaning

  • Meal Preparation

  • Travel Training

  • Literacy and Numeracy

  • Money Handling and Budgeting

  • Developing appropriate daily routines

  • Developing appropriate memory strategies

 

Capacity building usually starts with a thorough functional assessment by one of our OTs to ascertain your existing capacity levels and to set goals. Then, we will work with you to develop a personalised program to develop your skills in the appropriate areas based on the daily activities that you want to improve.
