NDIS Funding Category: Capacity Building and Improved Daily Living

Real-life meaningful opportunities to practice new skills are needed to grow and learn therefore interactions across natural environments are required. Therapy sessions are done at a location that is most comfortable and practical for learning, including education setting, day program/service, at home or in the local community. Moving forward, skills are transferred to different settings.

2. Training Solutions for Parents/Carers and Support Staff

NDIS Funding Category: Capacity Building and Improved Daily Living.

Training for parents/carers:

Many parents can feel left behind at the rapid pace of technology changes. If you’re a parent/carer or simply just want to be able to help the person you care/work for to learn and maintain new skills, then training you matters too.

4. Brain Gym®

Brain Gym® is part of our Training & Therapy 

Appy Connections’ learning programs does ‘The 26’ Brain Gym® movements as per individual needs and goals

Doing so increases focus, participation and thinking/processing skills yet best of all offers a sense of calm and grounding.

The founders of these wonderful movements are professionals and playmakers, together they gathered some of their favorite activities for learning and moving, gave them playful names, like the Owl and the Double Doodle and organized them according to three dimensions of movement, publishing them in a little orange book called Brain Gym: Simple Activities for Whole-Brain Learning.

What parents and carers have to say

Kristi makes learning fun and has helped my daughter with using different types of apps and programs on her iPad for a few years now and we hope she will continue into the future. I also asked my daughter if she likes it when she has help from you and if she would like more help when the virus is over and again she smiled and said yes!
