NDIS allied health FAQ

What is the role of allied health in NDIS?

All our Allied and clinical health services can be accessed by NDIS participants under Capacity Building – improved daily living.

Although we do not provide medical services, our Therapists are always working closely with medical health professionals to provide a positive experience and outcome for our clients and NDIS participants.

Is telehealth therapy as effective as in person?

Our telehealth appointments are provided by the same team of Therapists as in person appointments. Telehealth is a great option for clients with many benefits including greater convenience and less stress from travelling, ability to schedule videocalls at a time that suit you and delivered one one one by a clinician in your own home environment. Our therapists use the same resources and training material with a personalised approach.

What is the difference between a registered NDIS providers and a none registered providers?

Not all NDIS providers need to register with the NDIS Commission. However, registration can provide some assurance to NDIS participants that the NDIS provider’s services and supports meet the level of quality set out by the NDIS Quality and Safeguard Commission.

Allied health providers who are not a registered provider may not have experience specifically with disability supports.

What is the difference between allied health professionals and allied health assistants?

An allied health professional provides therapeutic and support services related to your healthcare. Northcott is an allied health provider, our team include speech pathologist, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dietetics, counsellors and behaviour support practitioners.

An Allied Health Assistant (AHA) works under the guidance of an allied health professional by supporting the program our therapist has created for you. The affordability of an AHA gives you more time to work on your goals. Our AHA’s are either qualified with a Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistant, studying their undergraduate degree to become Allied Health Professionals, or both.

When should my child see a speech therapist?

Therapy can be started at anytime. For children, an early childhood approach with a strong focus on early intervention has shown positive outcomes for children throughout their life and their families. Early childhood supports include therapies that are fun, engaging and age appropriate. For example, our Speech pathologists can provide the therapy session in your home or at the child’s school under supervision of their teacher, if you decide that this is the easiest treatment option. This allows the child to put into practice their communication skills with other children in real life scenarios.

In-situ observation also gives our Therapist an understanding of the challenges the child may be experiencing. This allows the Speech Pathologist to personalise their approach and implement strategies to assist in building the child’s confidence and communication skills. Our therapists work alongside families and teachers to provide a holistic supporting and a encouraging environment for the child.
