IBPF is the only locally owned and operated registered provider of NDIS therapy supports in the Wheatbelt.
We use local and community minded Allied Health Assistants (AHA) to maximise therapy frequency, ensure continuity of services and minimise the cost of travel. Senior Allied Health Professionals are used for comprehensive assessments, treatment plans and to closely support our AHA’s.
We believe in a client-focused and inclusive collaborative approach to therapy across the lifespan. We offer a large experienced therapy team including Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Allied Health Assistants. Click here for the IBPF NDIS Services Guide.
We will work with you and your support team through a shared Network Resource and provide training and up-skilling of your support team to implement therapist strategies. We want to promote as much choice and independence as possible for the best results.
Our Team will help you to decide on the best Service Model to reach your goals.
The Models include:
Allied Health Assistants
The AHA model involves using local Allied Health Assistants to provide therapeutic support to Participants under the guidance of Senior Consultant Therapists. They provide multidisciplinary support, within clearly defined parameters, to work towards meeting Participants’ NDIS goals. Allied Health Assistants collaborate regularly with Senior Therapists.
Benefits of using a local Allied Health Assistant Model:
- Helps address long waitlists and travel costs.
- Ongoing safe and effective therapy by someone who understands and is part of the community.
- Senior Therapists input into all assessments and planning.
- Allows more frequent and ongoing support for both participants and their families.
- Offer more sustainable, continuity of service by addressing by difficulty in recruiting and retaining in regional areas.
