This is the heart of Autonomy.
But for many, needing the assistance of others, or the environment can take away that autonomy.
Daily Living Training is a key space where Occupational Therapists can help you thrive.
This can look like either having 1:1 coaching with one of our therapists, to work with you to find your point of success, and build on from here…
You could work with your therapist to build a program for you to integrate with your support team… so that no opportunity for success are missed.
It is important to know that achieving autonomy can definately occur even when achieving independence can’t.
Even in spaces where dependence on others will always exisit, the Occupational Therapist at Kadia will be able to assist in increasing your (or the person you support) level of choice, control or input (the heart of autonomy).
There is a tight link between autonomy and well-being, which has been shown to be just as powerful for those who have difficulty in communicating their needs.
We can work with you 1:1, with your carers and / or any other people who are significant to you to help them understand how best to support you to develop skills to the best of your ability.
If you would like to know more, give us a call or speak with your Kadia Therapist to unpack what this could look like for you.
