Education and training are two of the things we are most passionate about at Action OT! We offer several education and training options to suit your needs, including:

On Demand Webinars

Facilitated by our Director and Senior OT Nikki available through Verve OT Learning. Topics include:

  • Life Skills Training for NDIS OT Providers – A small group session aimed to equip OT attendees with the knowledge and skills required to implement Life Skills Training with clients with disabilities, including (but not limited to) those with conditions such as Intellectual Disability, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Neurological Conditions and Developmental Delay. This education session is suitable for any OT wanting to develop their skills in this area with adolescent and adult clients.
  • Sensory Processing in Adults – As Occupational Therapists, don’t overlook the significance of sensory processing in your work with adult clients with disabilities. Join our session to enhance your understanding and skills in sensory assessment and interventions for adults.
  • Advanced Sensory Processing in Adults – Designed for OTs who have already completed the Sensory Processing in Adults Course run by Nikki, or those who have an understanding of the principles of sensory processing including assessment and intervention concepts. This workshop will step attendees through the process of how to work with clients with identified sensory processing issues to implement an advanced program of sensory-based intervention for complex (including non-verbal) clients. The aim of the training will be to assist OTs to implement sensory processing interventions with complex clients with goals including increasing engagement and independence and limiting adverse behaviours. How to then confidently disseminate findings and recommendations to caregivers and stakeholders will also be discussed.
  • Introduction to Decision-Making Capacity – Empower yourself as an Occupational Therapist to support decision-making for clients with disabilities! This interactive and informative workshop will enable attendees to learn to identify signs of difficulty and explore solutions to address them. Therapists will gain an understanding of the legal implications of supported decision-making and gain confidence in their role in the process.
  • Assess Supported Decision-Making Capacity – This engaging and informative workshop will teach attendees how to complete a thorough assessment of Decision-Making Capacity in clients with disabilities.  The workshop will provide an overview of how to make an application to the Tribunal for Guardianship, gather and prepare evidence to demonstrate a client’s ability in their Decision Making Capacity.
