Online or In-Person

It starts with a Connection Call

A Connection Call is your first meeting to discuss the therapy and or training needs of a person receiving NDIS therapy supports.

It may be themselves or their advocate on the call.

During this initial meeting time, an informal assessment or snapshot of the persons’ skills/needs/abilities are discussed. If any formal assessment types are required these can be discussed.

Kristi will then advice / recommend the possible service/support/programs on offer by Appy Connections

Case Study

Person: A middle-aged male who has Autism needed help to learn how to use his phone

Problem: At baseline – support workers were taking his phone and replying to his messages. Who considered his choice, control and privacy? Not everyone. Yet him replying with typing words due to language processing of text becomes anxiety-provoking and takes all the fun out of it.

Solution: Assessment of skills, needs, abilities and motivation (he values his connections with others in high regard). A learning program was set up and included visual schedule and instructions for both himself and his support workers

Outcome: In real-time he now responds to messages from his friends and family using his unique introductory line ‘This is X X speaking’ – yet it’s a text. Does anyone mind? No!

Additional Bonus: He is sent reminders when it’s time to send a birthday message and takes a lot of pride in sending these too.
