Our Occupational Therapist’s caseload specifically specialises goals that support a client’s activities of daily living such as self care skills, play, learning, emotional regulation, and school readiness. Unlike traditional therapy, Occupational Therapy services during our BOOSTA+ programs work towards clear achievable intensive goals.

Are there opportunities to supervise/mentor and be supervised/mentored?

Occupational Therapists will be offered the opportunity for weekly supervision and hands-on mentoring by the Senior Occupational Therapist who has more than 4 years experience within intensive therapy. She has supported new graduates and has supervised many placement students. Our OT supervisor believes in supporting mentees through their own personal learning styles and is willing to support all staff members.

Our Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists are supervised by a Senior Mentor with 15 years experience in leading clinics around Australia. This learning is personalised and structured to suit the career progression of the clinicians. For clinicians wanting to develop skills as a mentor or supervisor this can be discussed during team reviews and we always aim to provide opportunities for clinicians to extend their learning and experience.
