NDIS participants

As a dietitian, I specialise in working with individuals who have self-managed or plan-managed National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plans and require specific supports to enhance their health, well-being, and independence.

I offer a person-centred approach, meaning treatment will be tailored to your individual needs, preferences, and goals.

We offer comprehensive support for individuals of all ages, including adults, teenagers, and children, who are registered through the NDIS.

Regardless of the management type, our team is equipped to assist and provide the necessary services to meet the unique needs of each individual.

Persons with a disability may benefit from seeing a dietitian for several reasons:

Special Dietary Requirements: Some disabilities or medical conditions may necessitate specific dietary modifications. A dietitian can help develop a personalised nutrition plan that accommodates these requirements, ensuring optimal health and well-being.
Weight Management: Certain disabilities can impact an individual's mobility or physical activity level, which may contribute to weight management challenges. A dietitian can provide guidance on maintaining a healthy weight and offer strategies tailored to the individual's abilities and needs.
Nutrient Deficiencies: Individuals with disabilities may have a higher risk of nutrient deficiencies due to factors such as limited food choices, difficulty chewing or swallowing, or the need for specialised diets. A dietitian can assess their nutritional status, identify potential deficiencies, and recommend appropriate dietary adjustments or supplements.
Digestive Issues: Some disabilities are associated with gastrointestinal problems, such as difficulty with digestion or absorption of nutrients. A dietitian can help manage these issues through dietary modifications and recommend strategies to improve digestion and optimise nutrient absorption.
Meal Planning and Preparation: Disabilities may present challenges in meal planning and preparation, making it harder to maintain a balanced diet. A dietitian can provide practical guidance on meal planning, offer easy-to-prepare recipes, suggest adaptive cooking techniques, and recommend suitable kitchen tools or equipment.
Support for Caregivers: Dietitians can also offer guidance and support to caregivers of individuals with disabilities. They can provide information on nutrition-related aspects, assist with menu planning, and offer practical tips for ensuring adequate nutrition for the person they are caring for.

Overall, consulting with a dietitian can help individuals with disabilities optimise their nutrition, address specific dietary concerns, and improve their overall health and quality of life.

Pricing for these services aligns with the NDIS guidelines and will be outlined in the Service Agreement. Please note that additional charges may apply for travel, if applicable.
