Scope's therapists work across a range of settings

 

Regional therapy teams 

Working in our Regional therapy team, you provide a range of ongoing therapy and support to people of all abilities and their circle of supports. This is ideally suited to those who love to see customers thrive in the moment, while supporting them to achieve their goals as they move through different stages of life. In this team, you will have the opportunity to work within a transdisciplinary and keyworker model, and lean on the supports of your colleagues across the state. 

 

Focused therapy services

Our Focused therapy team provides customised therapy services to support our clients at different transition points in their lives, helping them meet specific goals and increase participation at key moments. 

Ours is a thriving state-wide, multidisciplinary team, providing support with equipment, assistive technologies and vital clinical services such as mealtime assessments and pressure care. For example, as an OT, you might help a person drive their power chair independently for the first time in their life.  As a speech pathologist, you might support a customer with state-of-the-art eye gaze technology to allow them to communicate with loved ones.

This type of work suits those who love to meet lots of new customers and their support networks. 

 

Communication and Inclusion Resource Centre 

CIRC is Scope’s national capacity-building hub. We aim to increase the access and inclusion of people with disability in their communities. This aligns with Scope’s strategic intent to create a greater social impact as a leading national disability provider. 

At CIRC, our allied health professionals provide consulting and training services to help break down communication barriers in a range of settings. This is ideally suited to those who love to work in a consultative environment, giving you the opportunity to apply your creativity and innovation to make a difference in the community.
