access to telepractice and essential allied health services

Allied Health Assistants

Allied Health Assistants work across all clinical teams including Physiotherapy, Speech Pathology, Exercise Physiology, Dietetics and Occupational Therapy.

AHA’s provide on-going therapy for clients under the supervision of the client’s assigned therapist.

AHA Model of Care

AHA’s support our therapists by;

  • Implementing therapy sessions prescribed by qualified therapists designed to address functional decline and increase independence and quality of life. Therapy programs are goal based, and target physical, cognitive and psycho-social functioning
  • Completing progress notes/documentation
  • Developing client resources
  • Liaising with other professionals e.g. doctors, teachers, other therapists, work colleagues
  • Work independently and alongside senior therapists

The use of a certified AHA often allows clients greater opportunity of not only stretching their NDIS plan budget further, but also benefiting from more regular therapy.

Referrals cannot be made directly for an Allied Health Assistant, as the client & AHA must be managed by a supervising clinician. For example, if you are interested in utilising one of our AHA’s for on-going speech pathology or dietetics, you would first need to send a referral for that particular discipline first.  

The clinician would then complete an assessment and delegate tasks (as appropriate) for the AHA to complete with the client. The clinician will establish and monitor the progression of the treatment program
