Therapy Team

Empowering People with Therapeutic Support

Our in-house Therapy Team integrates Positive Behaviour Support (PBS), Occupational Therapy (OT), and Speech and Language Therapy (SALT) to deliver expert-driven care tailored for people with mental health needs and behaviour that challenges.

Our In-house Therapy Support

Finding the right therapy support can take time. At Nurseline Community Services, our in-house speech-language and occupational therapists provide urgent support, adapted to the person’s unique needs.

How Our Therapist Team Can Support You

At Nurseline Community Services, we offer more than services—we offer solutions.

Our Therapy Team combines three crucial fields of support: Positive Behaviour Support, Occupational Therapy, and Speech and Language Therapy.

Our team provides evidence-based behavioural assessment to create tailored therapeutic plans based on the person’s capabilities.

Proven Expertise, Holistic Support

Multi-Disciplinary
Teamwork

Our multi-disciplinary team (MDT) provides support with evidence-based practices through functional, cognitive, and behavioural assessment tools.

Creating Capable
Environments

Through environmental assessment, we empower positive social interactions and effective communication. We support people to participate in meaningful activities by using proactive strategies, thus reducing the risk of restrictive practices.

Trauma-Informed
Care:

We employ Playfulness, Acceptance, Curiosity and Empathy (PACE) and Trauma Recovery Models to support children and young people with trauma-related challenges.

Effective Transition
Planning

Our structured transition plans facilitate smooth transitions from hospital to home. We establish partnerships focusing on trust, reliability and consistency, empowering people to develop key skills and become active citizens in the community.

Expertise in Complex Communication Needs

Our experienced Speech and Language Therapists (SALTs) support people with multimedia and assistive technology like avatars, visual charts, video stories and talking mats.

The Difference We Make

The true measure of our success lies in the positive outcomes achieved by the people we support.

Our impact is reflected in the stories of transformation and resilience shared by people and families who have experienced our tailored care.
