Who we are
The Department of Knowledge and Innovation is staffed by a multidisciplinary team with a range of experience in disability. The department comprises Novita’s Research Unit, Clinical (Allied Health) Profession Leaders and the Novita Library. We also collaborate with universities, industry partners and colleagues within South Australia and beyond.
What we do
Novita is committed to providing the best possible therapy services, support, and assistive technology to our clients and their families. We undertake research to ensure the services we provide are of a high quality, effective and deliver what our clients and their families require. We also work with academic and industry partners to attract and train the next generation of experts in child development, rehabilitation and disability.
Our current research effort is in two areas:
- Child development, rehabilitation and disability
- Assistive technology
Our research is published in peer-reviewed international research journals, national and international standards, conference presentations, and reports. More information on our projects can be found here. [link to projects section]
Novita’s vision is to be the pre-eminent provider of innovative children’s services that foster ability and inspire every child to achieve their best. Many of the Organisation’s strategic priorities have direct relevance to Novita’s research effort.
