NDIS Physiotherapists Helping Kids Reach Their Potential

If you have a child with disability, you want the best possible support to help them reach their goals. You also want to work
with a team that’s caring, compassionate, and makes paediatric physiotherapy fun.

Active Ability’s NDIS registered physiotherapists work with children with disability across Sydney. We focus on
supporting kids who have an intellectual disability, autism, mental health condition or neurological disorder.

We know children require support that considers their developmental, biological and psychological needs. Our experienced
physios work with families to create treatment plans tailored to your child’s needs and goals, along with your cultural or lifestyle preferences.

Our team can visit you in your preferred environment, whether that’s at home, school or a convenient local facility.

With Active Ability, you can start paediatric physio right away and get great value from your
NDIS funding – we do not have a wait list and do not charge for travel.

Paediatric physio with Active Ability

To start with, one of our NDIS physios will meet with you to talk about your child’s health history and assess their function. We take the time to listen, which helps us develop an evidence-based treatment plan to meet your child’s needs and goals.

If you’re new to the NDIS, we know organising services can feel overwhelming. Our team is here to assist in whatever ways we can. The Active Ability team can help you understand the NDIS, work out your eligibility, and create goals and a plan the NDIS may cover.

How does NDIS paediatric physiotherapy funding work?

Allied health and other therapy needed due to a person’s disability is funded by the NDIS. This includes speech therapy, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and more. The NDIS also funds training so support people and carers can implement health care plans.

Got NDIS funding?

Services delivered by an NDIS physiotherapist can be organised through the NDIS Capacity Building funding category ‘Improved daily living’.

All Australian physiotherapists must be registered with the Australian Health Practitioner Registration Agency (AHPRA). This means they must be qualified, insured and meet strict requirements for recency of practice and continuing professional development.
