Novita’s professional and dedicated Berri team offers a wide range of tailored therapy services to support kids, young people and adults living with disability to achieve their goals.
Occupational Therapy supports people living with disability with physical life skills such as movement, vision, sensory processing, sleep and personal care, as well as the skills needed for school and work. Novita’s Occupational Therapists can also provide advice, prescription and training for assistive technology and equipment that can support people living with disability to lead a fulfilling life.More about Occupational Therapy
Novita is a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) registered service and support provider, and we can help you and your family and carers to navigate the NDIS system and create your own NDIS plan.Learn more about the NDIS
Social Work supports kids, young people and adults living with disability, and their families – with planning and management during important stages of life. Novita’s Social Workers can also help with anxiety issues such as fears and phobias, parenting concerns, and social isolation, as well as supporting healthy relationships at home, school and work. A Social Worker can also advise on NDIS funding options.More about Social Work
To further support the people who need us most in the Riverland, Novita aims to expand our facilities, services and support offerings soon. We intend to provide equipment services, Assistive Technology solutions, as well as our full range of therapy services including Physiotherapy in the near future.
Developmental Educators support kids and young people living with disability to develop important social and emotional skills, communication and speech, routines and positive behaviour skills that support learning and growth. Novita’s Developmental Educators help to coordinate services for our clients, and can support the transition from primary school to high school, and from school to work.More about therapy services
Over time, Novita intends to expand facilities and the range of services and supports delivered locally to include speech pathology, physiotherapy and psychology, as well as Assistive Technology and equipment services.
Novita’s Berri hub is located in the former Disability SA office in Kay Avenue. Novita’s Berri team provides services and supports to people living with disability in the Berri area and throughout the Riverland. Depending on the services and supports you need, we can also offer therapy in the family home, at school or at an appropriate location through our mobile services.
