NeuroConnections is a community based occupational therapy group in Geelong.

NeuroConnections is a community based, occupational therapy group designed for young people living with a brain injury.

The group is tailored for people who would like to socialise, connect and develop their ability in social settings. The group is intended for people who feel like they don’t fit in other groups, want to make friends and want to have fun while doing it.

The group will occur weekly in 12 week blocks. The group will involve having the first week as a planning session followed by the second week being the activity sessions. As a member, you will be supported to plan the activity sessions – meaning you decide what you want do… Think barefoot bowls, laser tag, beach picnics – Then complete the activity the following week!
You will have the opportunity to meet people with similar stories, create friendships and just do fun, leisure based, social activities.

We work closely with other members of your team in particular neuropsychology or a behavioural specialist to ensure a collaborative approach.

How we can help:

Skills you will walk away with include:

  • Develop social skills
  • Develop communication skills
  • Develop money handling skills
  • Develop organisational, planning skills
  • Create a routine that’s enjoyable (not just medical appointments!)
  • Develop community access and transport skills
  • Develop independence to complete leisure based activities

Most importantly you will have a safe space to develop connections with those who have a similar story to you!
