Travel fees are charged at our hourly rate. A travel fee is charged for the duration of return travel from our clinic in Woolloongabba.

The duration for travel is based on travel routes from Google Maps.

Our team will always endeavour to schedule clients in similar locations for the same day to minimise the travel fee when possible.

​You will be advised of the cost of travel prior to your appointment.

Assessments and Reports

At Tools 4 Life we offer a range of standardised assessments including:
  • Functional Capacity Assessments
  • Developmental Assessments
  • Handwriting Assessments
  • Sensory Processing Assessments
  • Assessment of motor skills

The assessment completed with your child will depend on the information that is required to support with goal setting, treatment planning or if information is required for funding bodies (e.g., NDIS or private health insurance).

Your OT will work with you to identify which assessment would be the best fit for your child.

All of our assessments and reports are charged at our hourly rate. We will provide you with a quote for the cost of the assessment and report.
