It is a Cognitive Therapy Program that does not teach content, but changes the participant’s capacity to learn so that they can understand, absorb, retain, process and use the content. This lays the foundation for learning by strengthening critical cognitive functions necessary for meaningful participation in society. It enables those participating to experience life with strengthened cognitive function and to succeed where before they struggled and often failed.
The program is open for use within a school curriculum or as a stand alone course for those beyond those early years.

Trinity Park QLD 4879
With a satellite location newly opened in Trinity Park, Sydney-based Integrity Car Sales and Rentals is excited to be serving disabled clients in the communities of Cairns and the Atherton Tablelands. As Integrity is an NDIS Service Provider, Participants can use their NDIS Core Supports (Social and Community Participation) or Assistive Technology budgets to hire purpose-built disability vehicles for short to longer term rentals – regardless of how their Plan is managed.
Our high-quality, Toyota vehicles are factory fitted as wheelchair accessible vehicles at the time they were built. Because these features are ‘designed-in,’ we believe the ride you get in our cars is far superior to typical disability vehicles, which have after-market, bolt-on modifications . . . but we will let our clients be the judge of that.
There are many reasons why a participant might require a vehicle, but some common explanations we hear, include: limited access to disability taxis; discomfort in taxis; difficulty participating in short, spontaneous excursions; medical or physical limitations of family/carers; difficulty or inability to transfer out of chair; and the inability to attend church, social clubs, or other community programs.
To learn more about how you, or your NDIS supported client can access a disability vehicle rental, ring Integrity’s NDIS Consultant, Sean McElligott on: 0422 204 749, or send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org

At Independence World, we actively advocate on behalf of individuals with a disability that need more care. If a person has to constantly ask their friends, family or volunteers to assist them, it can break down relationships and those that are untrained can injure themselves, ultimately costing the tax payer more. A person may only need a only a few hours extra to stay healthy and happy, we help them get it. If they need 24 hour care, we have also helped people get that. Ask us for advice regarding the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
