What is an allied health assistant?

An allied health assistant’s role is to help you build your capacity and increase your independence. They do this by:

  • Helping you to implement your therapy plan and strategies created by your allied health professional (AHP).
  • Seeing you in-between your appointments with allied health professionals.
  • Helping you practice and reinforce what you’ve learned with your allied health professionals.

Important note: An allied health assistant does not replace your allied health professional. They must work together and will require regular check-ins every 4 to 6 weeks to ensure strategies are up-to-date to best support you.
