The Centre for Disability Studies runs two clinical services for people with disabilities.
NSW Development Disability Health Unit (DDHU) – based in the outpatients unit at Royal Rehabilitation in Putney sees adolescents and adults with developmental disability. The clinic provides a consultancy service in conjunction with the person’s general practitioner to ensure access to high quality health care through a network of specialist and allied health personnel.
Northern Sydney Intellectual Disability Health Team (NSIDHT) – a multidisciplinary clinic based a Cremorne Community Health Centre is for school aged children, adolescents and adults with intellectual disability and complex health needs. The service provides medical, psychological, psychiatry and nutrition clinics. The team is also able to provide clinics in special schools and a transition clinic for adolescents.
To help people get ready for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) we are providing people the opportunity to attend a facilitated PATH session (Planning Alternative Tomorrows with Hope) as a pre-planning tool.
The Centre for Disability Studies is currently expanding its allied health supports to people with complex needs under the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
