Who we are & what we do

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 Library. We also collaborate with universities, industry partners and colleagues within South Australia and beyond.

Novita is committed to providing the best possible therapy services, support, and assistive technology to our Novita kids and their families. We undertake research to ensure the services we provide are of a high quality, effective and deliver what our kids 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.
