Assisting people with disabilities with their mobility needs.

The Williams OT monthly wrap.

October 2019 was a roller coaster of events and happenings for us here at Williams OT. Let us walk you through it…

OT Week 2019

First thing’s first, it is National occupational therapy week. this whole week the occupational therapy world has been celebrating everything OT. And we have too.

In fact, we’ve been talking about a little (actually, it’s pretty big) special announcement up on our Facebook page.

We present you with

Featured Vehicle Modification

We’ve got a new hand control for one of our clients. It’s called an e-radial controller and we thank the team from Willshire Motortrimmers for installing it for us. Check out how to use this in the video below:[0]=68.ARAvQLLN0K3qvTIlBPIupK4lnBUAx5b_9k-On9XSiSoGyHVFVI0jTgNd8uvmQ7VluONnUCRFuZoO_YR1B7DVx9FYy_6_lzPiOcEUJWrwIKEchq-Rry8XHGwnIu96YATMd5v6u0072q7o13N8ZKmqjD6cXHtOinZSZRD-MK86R22xwLi4DlJ2CcOeM3oM7rNR5HUqJ4amXg5RR9xEQMRB3Dwa7S5VGV-MkxzSxm6LBoxrIjAvJldkIhxXRtxrBdKitBLGSlGVl31WbVdEIwEwtz6dIpliAH1PmWOsKGTCAcUfYVqFI89FzRLErfVEwBHVPuL2OHpc3PjXOJTHRFXr0GBPqc52JUTNy9Ld5w&__tn__=-R

Drivers with a Disability: Driving is Important

Driving is freedom often taken for granted. Unfortunately, disability, injury or illness can sometimes affect your ability to drive.

When it does, a driver trained occupational therapist (OT) can help you gain, maintain, or regain your independence.

A driver trained OT, through an assessment and rehabilitation focus can help build a person’s ability to get to the shops independently, pick up the kids in safety, get to work and earn an income, and visit family and friends. Or maybe it is that you just need to get away from it all.

Staff member of the Month: Meet John

Here’s John happily smiling in front of our core values.

Hi, I’m John, originally from the UK, I came here 13 years ago and worked in construction as a Brickie then decided I needed a change. So a few years ago, I decided to become a driving instructor which led me to Williams OT. So here I am, looking forward to the challenge and getting to know you all!

What makes a specialised driving instructor?

Here at Williams OT, we get questions on what makes a specialised driving instructor and why is it important that our clients need a specialised driving instructor. So, I made a quick little video explaining a couple of key points since we get these questions all the time. Click below to watch the full video:
