Therapy Connect helps families in remote locations access therapies online, including speech pathology and occupational therapy. The entire business is based online. The business is only 18 months old but growing fast. With the rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and National Broadband Network (NBN), many families have increased choice and control over therapy supports. The service is popular with remote communities, with many customers based in the NT. But the service is proving popular with Australian families around the world: the Therapy Connect team have provided therapy to families living in Vietnam, Thailand, Japan and Italy. The team is now working on a YouTube Channel to increase understanding for families prior to commencing therapy services, which allows people to understand more about a topic they may not necessarily feel comfortable discussing with others in a small community.
