Specialist Services

Working creatively with children and adults with disabilities, and their supporters, to build independence, confidence and skills.

Cara’s Specialist Services team is made up of experienced and highly-skilled Allied Health professionals. They are dedicated to working alongside children and adults with disabilities, their family members, support workers and key stakeholders to find personalised and creative ways to increase personal capabilities.

The Specialist Services team adopts a best-practice approach to give you the tools to work toward reaching your goals. Specialist Services staff have a range of qualifications, meaning they can align their areas of expertise with your needs. As a registered provider of specialist behaviour support, the Specialist Services team can provide assessments, plans, recommendations and can prescribe regulated restrictive practices. 

The team can work with you at home or in the community, offering coaching, mentoring and the creation of personalised resources for you to use with your support network.
