Welcome to Novita Kadina, where we are dedicated to supporting our clients from all over the Yorke Peninsula to achieve their goals and unlock their potential! Our purpose-built Hub at 4 Draper Street is our home on the Copper Coast for providing therapy and support to the wider Yorke Peninsula community.

At Novita, we get that there are unique challenges that come with living with a disability while living regionally, and we’re here to provide you with the support you need. Our mission is to assist as many clients as possible to work towards their goals, while providing you with unique, tailored support close to home that fits into your life.

We are a trusted NDIS services provider, with a team of passionate local staff. We provide support and therapy for a wide range of disabilities from Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy, to more complex conditions.
We work with your wider support network, such as local schools, carers, other support organisations, and relevant community groups to ensure that we can support you to achieve your goals, no matter what they are.

We have a proven track record in supporting South Australians to achieve their goals – in fact, we’ve working with people living with disability since 1939. We’ve become one of SA’s most respected community-based disability support organisations, supporting over 5,000 clients of all ages across the state to work towards their therapy goals, and participate in their communities.

According to a document prepared by the Yorke Regional Alliance, roughly 1 in 5 (7.5% of residents) people living in the Barunga West/Copper Coast/Yorke Peninsula council areas are living with a disability.

We’re more than just another office in Kadina – we’re a part of the wider Yorke Peninsula community. Our supports are tailored for locals – and delivered by passionate staff based locally.

Our commitment is to support you or your loved ones to live the life they want, through our core services – Therapy, Accommodation, Community Programs, and Assistive Technology. These pillars guide us in everything that we do, while ensuring that we have our clients at the heart of everything we do. Our services are delivered by highly qualified and passionate professionals, who are driven to support our clients to achieve their goals.

Our services

Our local team of therapists and support workers offer an extensive range of tailored services to assist you to achieve your goals. Whether you’re looking for occupational therapy, speech pathology, or another form of support, our services are all tailored to you, and what you need.

Occupational Therapy

Our team of occupational therapists (OTs) in Kadina are focused on supporting you to live your everyday life to the best of your ability. Our OTs can support you or your loved one to develop your daily living skills, through developing things such as movement and motor skills, sensory processing and regulation, personal care skills, sleep hygiene, and more.

We’re with you along every part of your journey – have a chat with us, and we can develop a therapy plan that meets your specific needs.

Novita OTs also have access to a wide range of cutting-edge assistive technology (AT) solutions through NovitaTech, our specialised AT service.

 

Speech Pathology

Working on your communication skills? Novita’s speech pathologists are the experts! Whether you’re working on alternate means of communication like PODD (Pragmatic Organisation Dynamic Display) books, or you need support with your speaking, listening, stuttering, or reading and writing skills, we want to hear from you. Novita Speech Pathologists are also able to support you with overcoming challenges in swallowing, eating and drinking safely.

We’re ready to support you to communicate your needs, and to make sure that every part of your communication gets the attention it deserves. Reach out to us today, and we’ll get you talking in no time!

Developmental Education and Positive Behaviour Support

Looking for guidance and support? Our developmental educators and positive behaviour support practitioners are here to get you on the right path! If your child exhibits behaviours of concern (BoCs), our qualified staff can support them to find safer, and effective methods of expressing themselves and their needs. We can work with your entire network (from schools, friends, family, and any other relevant people) to create a tailored plan that covers strategies to reinforce safe and useful behaviours, reduce the severity and frequency of BoCs, and support the development of daily living skills.

Support Coordination

Novita is a registered NDIS provider, with staff based in Kadina who can support you, your family, and your careers to create your own plan forward. We can take you through how the NDIS works, and organise the most efficient use of your budget to best support your everyday life.

Outreach

We understand that support isn’t just limited to the major service centres, and that coming up to Kadina everyday isn’t always a realistic solution for your support. Whether you’re down in Marion Bay, or up at Bute, or anywhere in between, we are able to reach out and provide support wherever you are along the Yorke Peninsula. We’ll bring our expertise and our support to your doorstep – while still being dedicated to providing you with the highest quality care and support. It’s not just therapy – it’s supporting the wider Yorke Peninsula.

Orthotics and Prosthetics

Our specialist orthotists and prosthetists offer a personalised approach to creating orthotics that can support your posture, walking gait, and skeletal needs. Our Novita orthotics van regularly visits Kadina throughout the year, which provides Yorke Peninsula residents the opportunity to get scanned and measured for personalised orthotics that fit you and your life perfectly by the experts. We’ll get you up and walking in no time!

Individualised Support

Our individualised support service assists clients from all over the Yorke Peninsula to work towards their goals, as well as with everyday support such as transport needs, personal care, domestic tasks, and much more. Novita support workers are extensively trained and passionate about what they do, and are able to tailor their support to the needs of each client. Individualised support can be delivered through the hub at Kadina, or through our Outreach program across the wider Peninsula. Wherever and whenever you need us, we’ll be there.

Community Programs

Our community programs, Step Up Life Skills and Transition to Work, support young adults living with disability to bridge the gap after leaving school, and supports them to prepare for adulthood. We work with participants over a 48-week program to bring out the potential of every client, and teach them the skills needed to engage with everyday life in Step Up, and break into the workforce and prepare for their first jobs in Transition to Work.

Step Up Life Skills and Transition to Work are designed for young people between the ages of 17 and 24, who have finished high school, and are looking to develop their independent living skills, and their employability. The programs are delivered by experienced Novita staff, with assistance from members of the local Yorke Peninsula community.

Step Up Life Skills and Transition to Work will begin at the Kadina hub shortly – register your interest today.
