What An NDIS Dietician Does

Our Accredited Practicing Dieticians (APDs) are tertiary qualified health professionals that specialise in providing advice and counselling about diet, food and nutrition. We have hand picked the best dietician in the region to ensure that participants are getting the most up to date advice for making better food choices.

Our dieticians have studied nutrition and dietetics to have a comprehensive understand of how nutrient intake and gut health directly impacts all other body systems.

In 2019, we are flooded with unhealthy options as well as misleading messages about food. A good dietician will debunk fad diets and misleading beliefs; offering clear, useful ways of approaching food that can lead to not only changes in physical health and appearance, but also mood, motivation and energy.

Each participant is assessed independently, before being offered specific recommendations and interventions targeted at improving that person’s gut health through practical meal plans and lifestyle advice.

Book An NDIS Registered Dietician

Once NDIS approved, most participants will work with an NDIS Planner and/or Local Area Coordinator to develop a support plan. Each participant develops an individualised plan that identifies the specific outcomes they wish to achieve, the disability supports that will be funded by the NDIS and other supports they require; often an occupational therapy assessment (click here) can aid in this process of identifying needs.

The NDIS is unique in that participants are now given choice and control over the supports that they receive. If funding for “Improved Daily Living” is included in the plan, and diet (gut health) has been identified as an area of concern, then this often means that dietetics is covered. The next step is to speak with My Care Provider to book an appointment.
