Not sure? Ask us!
Do I need special funding for Equine Facilitated OT?
Nope! We are able to bill this as a standard occupational therapy session, as equine therapy or core capacity building!
Do you have capacity?
We sure do! We have a little box that pops up when we have a waiting list.
Is this only for children?
Absolutely not. We cater to all ages.
Is it a set program for sessions?
No. We tailor each session to suit the individual client needs. This means some clients ride, some clients don't. It is completely down to the individual, we will be flexible to make our service work for you.
What even is equine facilitated OT?
We get creative to use the horses to reach our goals! Horses can be great teachers - they show us emotional regulation, can teach us about communication and relationships. They also build our fine and gross motor skills while we help them in their every day environment. Riding builds core strength and helps us to use our muscles! So many different activities can be done in our sessions to reach your specific goals.
Am I meant to bring my own OT?
No - our registered occupational therapists are on site here in Mount Cotton.
Can I do more than one session?
Absolutely. You let us know how frequently you would like to come. You can also do two therapies back to back.
Do I need a referral?
No - unless you are doing a private health or Medicare rebate, you do not need a referral.
How do you bill us?
We can bill to self or privately managed NDIS plans, or private funding. If you need special line items for private health or medicare please let us know. If you would like us to send your bill directly to your plan managers, please let us know their email as soon as you can.
Can I pay for a block of sessions?
Yes! You can pay for 1, 3, 5 or 10 sessions at a time.
We can also quote you for a year of sessions.
