Cootharinga continues to have a strong commitment to increasing and improving our services in North Queensland. We strive to work towards improving the assistance our staff provides to the people we support with the opportunity to tailor their support needs to their individual wishes. In the last six months, all Cootharinga staff have attended training in person centred planning which is being implemented across all of our services.
Person centred planning is a tightly focused plan for each person that responds to their individual needs, goals, aspirations and ambitions. This individualised approach means that flexible, responsive and innovative support options are developed for each person.
Cootharinga is a registered Allied Health Service provider. Parents and carers of eligible children are able to purchase services from Cootharinga funded by Better Start and Helping Children with Autism (HCWA) Initiatives, resulting in no out of pocket expenses.
Children unable to access government initiatives can use Private Health Fund or Medicare rebates, if applicable.
