Therapists and Specialists

Living with disability can be challenging but there is a wide range of therapies and support available to help make life easier for you. By having access to therapy or specialised support sessions you may be able to adapt or regain independence with a disability, manage behaviours or look after your mental wellbeing.

For instance, you may need the services of a physiotherapist to help with movement, a speech therapist to help with communication or swallowing issues or a nutritionist to advise you on your diet. Occupational therapists can give recommendations for equipment specific to your needs and other specialists can assist with teaching you life skills or help with self expression.

The best therapy or support depends on your disability, what your needs are and what challenges you’re looking to overcome.

If you are caring for a loved one with a disability, you or other members of your family may also be entitled to support to help you in your caring role. This may be something general such as learning first aid skills, or it could be more specialised to the needs of the person with disability; for example learning sign language or how to manage behaviours associated with autism.
