Compass Allied Health is a multidisciplinary team of experienced Physiotherapists, Speech Pathologists and Exercise Physiologists. Our therapists are passionate about supporting participants with disabilities and have upskilled in a range of conditions to ensure the highest quality of care.
There are currently over 200 local NDIS participants linked in with Compass therapists. Considerable time and resources have been put into implementing systems and training to ensure that we are delivering an excellent service and securing what participants need from a therapeutic perspective.
The team prides itself on their clinical skills, ability to communicate with all parties, willingness to advocate for the needs of the participant and reliability in submitting necessary documentation.
For more information about who is on the team and what they specialise in, please check our about us page.
Compass offers a flexible and accessible service to accommodate the various needs of people with a disability. Our consultations can take place in the school, home, workplace, community facility or Compass HQ Clinic. A personalised management plan is developed for every participant that focuses on the goals that were stated in their NDIS plan.
In addition to therapeutic consultations, we can provide assessment, trial and prescription of assistive technologies e.g. walking frames, standing frames, customised splints, AFO’s, cough assist devises, footwear and orthotics.
We can assist with transitions to school (making sure staff and/or peers are ready to help your child achieve their potential at school).
We can help with inclusion in community activities e.g. sports, leisure and workplace.
Please see the step-by-step summary below for an understanding of our NDIS service process.
1. Online referral is submitted for the participant. (This can be done by the participant, family member, support co-ordinator or therapist)
2. Senior Compass therapist triages the referral
3. Participant is contacted by Compass admin and an initial appointment is scheduled.
4. Initial Consult: 1hr 30 mins | 1hr follow up time is allocated for the therapist to formulate a plan, establish programs, communicate with the care team and collaborate with the Compass team.
5. Follow up appointments are scheduled until the next plan review based off the therapist’s recommendation e.g. 45 mins fortnightly home visits.
6. Service Agreement and schedule is provided to the participant.
7. Services are delivered and any AT or small consumables are assessed/trialed/prescribed.
8. Six weeks before the plan review date the therapist submits their service plan review which recommends what the participant will need in the next plan cycle and provides all necessary clinical supporting evidence.
9. Once new plan date is allocated, the process repeats from step 5.
