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 8 – 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 linked to the NDIS Price Guide. Overall fees and charges will be individually tailored and outlined in a service agreement and will vary depending on the frequency, duration and location of the sessions.

What funding is relevant?
Participants will need to have access to the National Disability Insurance Scheme for this program:

  • Funding Support Area of “Improved daily living”
  • Funding Support Area of “Improved relationships”
