Assistance Dogs Australia provides occupational therapy sessions in Engadine NSW, conducted by our occupational therapists Claire and Lauren. Our occupational therapists are able to provide sessions in-clinic, via Telehealth (Australia-wide), within schools, within the community or within the home depending on the goals of each client.

Our two occupational therapists are also able to provide school-based group sessions at local primary and high schools.
Additionally, our occupational therapists can provide Animal Assisted Therapy sessions with trained dogs. Our dog co-therapist team includes Labradors named Asta, Bentley, Ike and Joy.
