Being agency managed with the NDIA is often how first plans are completed, this means that right now we can't see you. NDIA managed plans need to be seen by Registered Providers, we have decided that this is not an avenue we wish to persue at this time.
You can approach Intereach and request to be plan managed, once you are plan managed we are more than happy to provide you solutions!
Get in touch with your Local Area Coordinator or Early Childhood Early Intervention Coordinator to switch your plan over.
Medicare is a great system, however it cannot be used as frequently as we would like for allied health services. Once you strike a care plan with your GP you cannot get another one for 12 months and one day. This means if you utilise all sessions with Light Up Their World you will have to commence paying under fee for service.
We are implementing new policies and procedures around our service provision - Medicare plans will be used as a triage tool to advise you on what should happen next after we assess your child.
Occupational therapists work in partnership with the young person, their parents and other important people in their life, such as their doctor, teacher and other health professionals.
The occupations of young people are centred around play and learning, and include getting dressed, eating, going to school, making friends and being part of a club or group. Occupational therapists working in paediatrics:
elp children achieve their developmental milestones such as fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination to help with play, school or independent skills (e.g. throwing a ball, getting dressed, holding a pen or utensil)
• Educate and involve parents, carers and others to facilitate the development and learning of children
• Help children with developmental delays learn everyday tasks (such as bathing, getting dressed, brushing their teeth, and feeding themselves)
• Help children with behavioural issues maintain positive behaviours in all environments (e.g. instead of hitting others or acting out, using positive ways to deal with anger, such as writing about feelings or participating in a physical activity)
