Better Rehab Brisbane skilled Occupational Therapists work with participants aged between six and 65 (as well as family and carers) to provide tailored Occupational Therapy to support you at home, at work and in the community. We support you in finding ways to enhance your day-to-day life and social connectivity.

We can help you make changes to your home so you can move around with greater ease, and prescribe assistive technology or devices. We can offer support if you are diagnosed with conditions such as Autism Spectrum Disorder or Autism to help you meaningfully engage with activities that matter most to you.

At Better Rehab Brisbane, we believe independence and mobility are key aspects of good health and wellbeing. So our skilled Physiotherapists help adults and children get the most out of life by providing a range of tailored and proven treatments and therapies.

They will help you improve your mobility, balance, movement, posture, strength, coordination and management of chronic conditions. In your home or in our Brisbane clinic, we’ll thoroughly assess your abilities and work with you on a tailored Physiotherapy plan to help you achieve your goals.

Better Rehab Brisbane, Positive Behaviour Support Practitioners provide a person-centred approach to behaviour that is focused on improving quality of life and reducing behaviours of concern. We work closely with you and your family, carers and support networks (and with other service providers like your Occupational Therapist) to develop intervention plans and strategies that allow you to live your best life.

Our team can help prepare you for school, work or other social activities, assist in developing communication and social skills, and build your mental health, flexibility and resilience.

At Better Rehab Brisbane, we understand that it can sometimes be difficult to receive support in person. Our Telehealth services give you access to the highest standards of expert care through simple, user-friendly technology. This means you can receive therapy or be assessed without the need for travel or physical contact.

At Better Rehab Brisbane, our Speech Pathologists help adults and children who have difficulties or impairments in speech (articulation of sounds), receptive language (understanding language), expressive language (using language), social communication, voice, fluency (stuttering), literacy and swallowing.

We tailor therapy and support services to participants and their families, friends and carers, and prescribe Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) where necessary. Better Rehab Brisbane Speech therapy services may benefit you if you have been diagnosed with a neurological condition, an intellectual or developmental delay or hearing impairment.

At Better Rehab Brisbane, we believe everyone, regardless of ability or lifestyle, benefits from regular activity and healthy eating. Our Exercise Physiologists can help you be more active by improving your fatigue levels, coordination, balance, strength, endurance and mental health.

They work with you to improve your wellbeing in ways you enjoy and which are safe for you. Our programs are tailored to your individual needs and focused on making you feel safe and comfortable.

Better Rehab Brisbane provides specialist support to infants, children and young people up to the age of 16. Our team of Occupational Therapists, Speech Pathologists, Physiotherapists and Behaviour Support Practitioners partner with you as the parent, carer or guardian to set meaningful goals (relating to home and school tasks, building relationships and friendships, and taking part in your local community) for your child’s development, and support you in helping them achieve those goals.

If you are diagnosed with conditions such as Autism Spectrum Disorder or Autism, we can offer support and help you meaningfully engage with activities you enjoy. Brisbane Occupational therapists for children with autism work to help children overcome their challenges and improve their skills.

Better Rehab came to my home after I had a knee replacement. The rehab I was given in my home was practical and very useful. I felt very supported.

Better Rehab's staff is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and compassionate. They helped me rehabilitate my knee after surgery, and they always went above and beyond to make sure I was on track while keeping me comfortable and informed. If you require NDIS occupational therapy, I highly recommend their services.

The speech pathology treatment at the North lakes centre of Better Rehab is absolutely amazing and my young daughter who was having a hard time with her speaking has gotten so much better at it ever since she started treatment here. And it was such a relief to have NDIS support here too. Highly recommended!

The team at Better Rehab Springwood with NDIS support performs a fantastic job of teaching clients how to drive safely and raising community awareness about driver rehabilitation, and they were the perfect fit for our son since they understood the challenges he was facing and they were very patient and understanding with him as he slowly progressed and now his driving skills are not far away from being perfect.

    Frequently asked questions

    An occupational therapist will complete a comprehensive functional assessment, including asking about symptoms (cognitive, physical, emotional) and exploring functional issues in detail. An occupational therapist will use this information to determine what you need and want in your everyday life, as well as what obstacles you may face in achieving those goals.

    Better Rehab Brisbane is a registered provider of NDIS services. Our services include:

    Occupational Therapy
    Speech Therapy
    Exercise Physiology
    Positive Behaviour Support
    Occupational Therapy Children
    Driving Assessments
    Functional Capacity Assessments

    Yes. If you have not seen one of Better Rehab therapists before, you will require an assessment. An assessment helps us to identify your needs and work out how many sessions you require to work towards your goals

    Our therapists will work with you on identifying your needs based on your NDIS goals and plan. During this consultation you can choose how many hours of therapy you would like and how often you would like each type of therapy.

    It is important we allocate time to write NDIS reports to:
    • Ensure we can accurately monitor your progress against your goals
    • Develop your applications for approval of items like home modifications or assistive technologies
    • Support your plan reviews to ensure you receive the required amount of funding for your ongoing support

    Our therapists will develop goals with you during your initial assessment. These goals may change over your plan period, based on your progress and priorities.

    An NDIS plan is a document that outlines the individual’s goals for now or longer terms. It also includes their current level of independence, skills, and support needs.

    The plan is developed in consultation with the individual, their family members or carers, and other professionals in the community who are involved in supporting them.

    Yes. We have clinicians that are mobile and can provide you with the services you need, either at home, telehealth or Better Rehab Brisbane Clinic.
