Young Person Support

Therapy based services for children & young peopleYPSWeb CafePic

Who is it for?
Young Person Support is aimed at children and young people with disability aged 9 – 18 years.  The broad aim of the program is to increase the participation and inclusion of children and young people with disability in everyday settings.

What is it?
Individual Therapy sessions take place with a Speech Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist or Psychologist, depending on the child’s or young person’s needs and goals.

How does it work?
Once a referral has been received it will be prioritised according to the individual needs of the child or young person.  If more information is required, Noah’s will contact the family to get a better understanding of the individual needs.  Once a place is available, therapy sessions will be tailored to best meet these needs, at a location that is suitable and appropriate; this could be at home, the young person’s school or another suitable location.  As this service is needs based, more than one therapist may be involved.

How much do I pay?
Fees for this program are subject to the relevant funding.

What funding is relevant?
The program is fully funded by the NSW Department of Family and Community Services, Ageing, Disability and Home Care (ADHC). The amount of funding required will vary, and will depend on the complexity of the needs of each young person being supported and the location in which the services are received.  For example, 10 sessions would require between $1,680 and $2,520 of funding.

How do I enrol?
Anyone can refer to this program, contact Noah’s Inclusion Services on 02 4423 5022 or complete the Referral Intake form and hand it to Noah’s reception or your Noah’s contact. Priority will be given to those with the greatest need.
