About our services Experience your life independently

Everyone experiences the world differently. Whether we’re conscious of them or not, we all learn skills to help us navigate our daily environments. Getting on a train, going to work or school, or functioning at home — each one requires a set of practical abilities.

These skills are essential in getting us out and active in the community: safely exploring the world and our own personal potential. These kinds of skills can be learned in Orientation & Mobility training, or with the support of Occupational Therapists.

‘Orientation’ refers to our understanding of where we are in the environment. ‘Mobility’ relates to our ability to move safely and confidently through the environment. Occupational Therapists teach skills to independently perform all kinds of daily tasks.

Anything is possible with the right support through a service program designed for you. Talk to us about your personal goals and what you hope to achieve in life.
