How Plumtree works in educational settings

Outside of our occupational therapy centre in Marrickville, we collaborate with you and your child’s school or early childhood centre to ensure your child participates fully in all routines. We adjust the environment or resources as needed so that your child learns alongside their peers.

As the family, you hold the primary relationship with the school, and we support you as part of the team around your child. Our visits to schools or early childhood settings are 1.5 hours long, allowing us to maximise our time by sharing information and strategies with the staff. This ensures they can continue implementing these strategies during their daily routines when we are not there.


Working together with Plumtree

If you decide to appoint Plumtree as your service provider under the NDIA, together we will complete a Service Agreement. This agreement is relevant whether you are Plan-Managed, NDIA-Managed or Self-Managed. We both make agreements to each other to ensure you achieve the goals for your child.
