I just wanted to give some feedback about the lovely Rebecca [Occupational Therapist]. I really enjoy working with her as she is one of the best and most dedicated therapists that my daughter has seen, and she’s seen quite a few over the years! Rebecca always returns phone and text messages and emails and keeps me fully informed about what she is doing and how my daughter is going. John and I feel very lucky to have Rebecca and the rest of the allied health team working towards great outcomes for my daughter.

"From the moment The Junction Works first came to my home, I felt comfortable and trusting...The Junction Works eased my anxiety and I am blessed to have [them] in my life. The Junction Works add so much extra into everything they do. My kids cannot tell me how their day was, but I can tell from the smiles on their face when they leave The Junction Works that they enjoyed their day, and this means everything...I tell families that they are missing out if they do not come to The Junction Works."

David lives has been attending The Junction Works’ Disability Day Program since he left school over ten years ago.
Anne, David's mother, says David really enjoys his time at The Junction Works, particularly the variety of activities he’s involved in and the good friends he’s made. “David is very social. He loves involvement with people”, she explains.
Michael and Anne are aware of how easy it is for people with a disability to slip into isolation. So it’s important to them that David continues to enjoy a strong social network.
Like most parents, they rank connection with family and friends, along with good health and happiness as their primary aspirations for their son.
In fact, being able to spend time “just hanging out with mates, cooking a meal or watching the footy” is one of the tangible benefits they see being provided by The Junction Works’ Living Skills and Respite House.
They also see the House providing David with the opportunity to develop skills that will assist him in increasing his independence; like problem solving, decision making and confidence in functioning in new and different environments. Skills that can, as his Dad puts it, “further his horizons”. These are the skills that will build David’s confidence to transition into alternate living arrangements when the family’s situation changes. And The Junction Works will be supporting David and his family on his journey towards greater independence.
NDIS Participant at The Junction Works, Haik Adams, talks about his experiences receiving disability support from TJW Occupational Therapist, Lisa.
