SERVICES

One size fits all approach does not work. Human beings have their own unique needs and SKK are committed to providing our clients an individualized service that meets their needs and goals. Our services are based on a social model of recovery and integrate evidence-based research to guide our practice.

SKK Process

Once the referral has been accepted, a facilitator in partnership with the client will work towards creating an intervention plan. Assessments include interaction with the individual, observations of the individual in current living environment and interviews of significant people within the person’s life. This includes collaboration with the NDIS Support Coordinator and other service providers within the individual’s care team.

How We Offer Support Through NDIS

Behavioral Therapy and Support

If you have an existing NDIS plan, then you may be eligible to access our behavioral supports under Core Support and Capacity Building. Positive behavior support involves engagement to build on client strengths and develop opportunities for skill building. By encouraging positive behavior, the frequency and the severity of the behavior can be reduced.

Whether you are feeling anxious, depressed, angry, confused or generally overwhelmed, we can help you learn new ways to lead your emotions, identify coping strategies and capabilities so you can be more confident. We offer 1-on-1 or group support sessions to help you develop healthier relationships and improve wellbeing.

We engage you and your care team to break down unwanted or distressing behavior and work together to devise a behavior management strategy to help you manage these feelings in a resourceful way.

Once we have gained insight into a person’s behavior, the next step is to develop strategies to encourage appropriate behavior through a positive, human-centered approach. We create with you individualized strategies that are responsive to your needs while developing pro-social behavior and improving the quality of your life.

When developing an intervention plan, we observe any known behavior, identify what causes or contributes to this behavior and devise a range of possible approaches and strategies for change. Therapists help break down desired behaviors into small, achievable tasks.

Occupational Therapy
