About Access Therapy
Michelle started Access Therapy in 2015 with a view to providing quality occupational therapy services to people with a disability throughout the Sydney and surrounding areas. Access Therapy, occupational therapy practise is dedicated to providing exceptional services to people with complex physical, neurological and neuromuscular conditions.
Access Therapy was first registered to provide therapeutic supports and home modifications under the National Disability Insurance Scheme in 2016 when the scheme rolled out across Western Sydney. We have continued to provide occupational therapy since that time as those receiving plans under the NDIS has continued to expand.
