Home-Based Therapy Assistant Services

Welcome to the Therapy Assistance Sunshine Coast (TASC) Program. We provide home-based therapy assistant services to children with special needs on the Sunshine Coast, with a special focus on Autism Early Intervention.

How It Works

Child receives a diagnosis and is approved for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

Child connects with community based allied health providers for early intervention services (Occupational Therapist, Speech Pathologist, Psychologist, Physiotherapist, etc)

Child visits with allied health providers regularly for direct intervention, usually 45-60 minutes per week or fortnight

Each of the child's providers give parents a home therapy program to complete (often the parents ends up with 3-4 home intervention programs to complete)

Parents feel overwhelmed, burnt out, and are unable to complete the home intervention. Leading to poorer outcomes for children.

Parents have trained and experienced home-based TASC Therapy Assistants who assist in implementing home therapy programs (implemented by the family's preferred providers), in-turn boosting therapy intervention to up to 6 hours per week

Parents share the burden for home therapy and are relieved, children participate in more intensive home-based and family-centred intervention, leading to better outcomes.

For Parents

Parenting a child with special needs can be challenging, and supporting their intervention needs between specialist sessions can make it even harder. Our goal is to provide families with trained and experienced transdisciplinary Therapy Assistants to support the implementation of home-based therapy programs, using all your own preferred providers.
