Who we are & what we do

Novita’s Department of Knowledge and Innovation is staffed by a multidisciplinary team with a wide range of experience in the disability sector.

The Department includes the Novita Research Unit, Clinical (Allied Health) Profession Leaders, and Novita’s Resource Library.

Novita is committed to providing the best possible therapy and support services and Assistive Technology for kids, young people and adults living with disability and their families.

We undertake research and collaborate with universities, industry partners and colleagues to ensure the services we provide for our clients are high quality, effective and deliver what our clients and their families need.
