CDS is a registered NDIS provider working with participants aged 7 years and over. CDS is working with participants across NSW to increase their independence and achieve their goals.


We can support a person with a disability to participate in community life and have the same opportunities as other people. We do this through therapy facilitation and capacity building support.

What are therapy facilitators?

 

Therapy facilitators are workers trained to help you with your therapy plan.

They can work with you on a plan designed by your allied health professional who can be a:

  • Speech pathologist
  • Occupational therapist (OT)
  • Physiotherapist

 

How will therapy facilitators help me reach my goals?

 

Therapy facilitators can usually work with you one-on-one more often than an allied health professional.

This means you are more likely to achieve your goals!

 

Therapy facilitators have lots of special skills and training on how to follow programs designed by allied health professionals. 

We are a team working together to support you.

 

What is capacity building support?

  We can support a person with a disability to participate in community life and have the same opportunities as other people.

Develop the skills you need to get ready for the day or manage your life e.g. cleaning and cooking.

 

Increased social and community participation
