The Potential Ability Group offers a variety of Occupational Therapy services.

A holistic assessment is often important to truly understand what is going on for the individual. Our Occupational Therapists can complete a range of standardised and non-standardised assessments depending on the individual client’s needs.


As Occupational Therapists our interventions are grounded within occupations, this means that they are activity based. Whether we are modifying the activity that is currently a challenge, the environment or the tools that are used for that activity, or working on skill development for the individual, our therapists will ensure that the intervention sits within the context of the client’s life. Therapy should not be ‘work’. It should not be another thing that a family or individual needs to make time for.  As Occupational Therapists, our team will work with the client and their support network to ensure that the strategies provided are easily integrated into your lives.

Allied Health Assistants

The Potential Ability Group is pleased to share they will be expanding their business to include Allied Health Assistants (AHA) in 2023. There has been a shortage of Occupational Therapists for several years across the country with the uptake of the NDIS and particularly in regional areas.

The Potential Ability Group is expanding to include Allied Health Assistants in their team to help support better access to Occupational Therapy interventions to a larger group of people. Our Allied Health Assistants have completed specific training to support our Occupational Therapists. They will be available in certain regions initially, but we hope to expand this service further to all our major hubs.

The Allied Health Assistants will travel to you like our Occupational Therapists do, and they will support the implementation of a therapy plan tailor made by one of our Occupational Therapists for you/your child.

The ‘Improved Daily Living Skills’ funding line under NDIS plans can be utilised for AHA services. Unfortunately, AHA’s are not funded by DVA at this time.

Please speak to your Occupational Therapist or our friendly admin team if you are interested in this new service.

Supporting Caregivers/Educational Facilities

Our Occupational Therapists can help you interpret and implement any recommendations/reports you have received from a specialist. We are also able to support you in your learning/understanding of the client’s challenges.


Work towards your goals in a group environment where the program is developed with specific consideration of the group’s needs. While being supported on a particular focus area(s), the benefits of attending a group program include opportunities to connect and interact with others. It also can be a more cost-effective therapy option.

Presentations/Professional Development

The Potential Ability Group offers a number of presentation topics. We can tailor make a presentation package based on the groups needs and experience. The length, location and topic of the presentation can be altered to suit your needs. A great opportunity to increase your understanding and support achievement of therapy outcomes at home or in your work environment for professional development.

Information Sessions for Caregivers

Tailor made for the caregivers of our clients. We offer information sessions usually based around a common topic of interest. The information session will provide you with some background information and the remainder of the session will provide practical strategies in relation to the topic.

  • Education / Skills Retraining / Rehabilitation
  • Therapeutic Exercise
  • Equipment Prescription (e.g. walkers, wheelchair, seating, scooters)
  • Falls Prevention
  • Home Modifications
  • Advice regarding Support Services
  • Socialising
  • Independence
  • Home safety
  • Safety and Engagement in Community
  • Focus on Quality of Life


We understand that reports are required for a variety of reasons; sometimes it is necessary to have written information to keep track of who you have in your support team and what their involvement has been, and sometimes it is important to have a report to share recommendations or advocate for funding. We believe that all reports should be informative whilst being easy to read, understand and follow. If you would prefer an alternative means of communication such as a summary phone call from your therapist, then that is an option also.
