TAD -Therapist Information Session (8, 9, 10th of September; 10am to 12:00 pm)

Published

TAD has now moved into new premises at Northmead and back up and running. Apart from the Custom Designed Aids Service, the Freedom Wheels Modified Bike Program is now well under way.

We wish to hold a Therapist Information Session to introduce staff to our services and premises.

We are targeting this at relatively new therapists, who are unfamiliar with how TAD operates, but anyone who wants to come along and find out a little more about us is very welcome. The format of the morning will involve a short talk about the Custom Designed Aids service, how to refer to us, examples of projects that we have undertaken including presentation of some of the frequently requested items and the process that we use in the production or modification of the aid.There will then be an introduction to the Freedom Wheels program, where bike assessment clinics are running again. The process and the modifications are now streamlined to allow more kids to access modified bikes. The process of application will be explained and bikes will be on display to illustrate the modifications available. Kids with mild weakness to significant functional disabilities can be catered for that could not otherwise have the pleasure of riding a bike.

Date: 8, 9, 10th of September (Mon, Tue, Wed)Time: 10am to 12:00 pm

Program:

 

  • 10 am to 11pm: Presentation by therapists covering:TAD’s services in general Custom Designed Aids including frequently requested items and our scope in modifying and customising other pieces of equipment Freedom Wheels Modified Bike Program
