Why should I choose an interprofessional service? The Integritas difference 

Our team includes Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists. Our team will work with you to identify what you want to be able to do. We work with individuals and families to maximise each person’s strengths, address their needs, and we are dedicated to supporting you to achieve your goals. Your personalised therapy team will involve the team members with the skills you need. You might work with more than one discipline at a time. We can work with you in our clinic, your home, school, work and the local community – wherever is best to help you achieve the things you want and need to be able to do.

Our intention is to build capacity to enable you to participate in home, school, work and the community so you can get on with life. Our approach will provide you and your family/carer with an individualised, time-limited program based on the best available evidence and current clinical practice. This approach will enable you to achieve your goals in an appropriate timeframe utilising the specialist skills available from all members of our interprofessional health care team.
