About us

Rising Youth Occupational Therapy provides Occupational Therapy, Therapy Assistance and Support Work services to neurodiverse teens and young adults all over Australia.

We understand that teenage and young adult years come with new levels of responsibility and challenges. Our aim is to support young people to develop the skills they need to reach their goals and obtain a new level of independence in all areas of daily life. We love seeing young people overcoming barriers to participate in the activities that are meaningful to them.

What makes us different

We recognise that the therapy and support required for teenagers/ young adults is very different to those of children or older adults. Our services are specially designed to benefit individuals in this stage of life.

We celebrate the strengths and differences that neurodiverse individuals bring, and we aim to provide supports that honor and respect these differences.

Our session times are catered to you. We do not want young people missing out on school to attend our therapy appointments therefore we provide evening appointments as late as 7pm.

We work on real life skills that your young people will take with them for the rest of their life.

Who are we.
