Who is Ability WA and what makes us stand out?

We began in 1951 as a small group of parents who formed an organisation looking for an innovative way to access care and support for their children with Cerebral Palsy. In 2022 we are recognised as one of WA’s leading disability service providers. Our sector has changed a lot over the years, and we have too. What remains the same is our dedication to our customers and our staff. We strive to make a difference in the lives of those living with disabilities by connecting with heartachieving togetherthinking differently and making things happen.


Who our stars are!

As an Occupational Therapist you will be responsible for supporting our customers in achieving a lifestyle of their choice by providing a contemporary therapy service that maximises their independence and participation. You will manage a clinical portfolio, providing a quality therapy service to customers of varying diagnoses and complexity and thoroughly understand and deliver contemporary disability-specific therapy supports, including assessment, direct intervention, report-writing, co-ordination and case management.

Hear it from our amazing team!

“Having the structure of an organisation that you know will share clinical responsibility is excellent. I know that if I have a question for my manager or another therapy discipline, it will be answered. The team has a brilliant camaraderie and a real sense of family.” - Jacinta Gabbedy (Occupational Therapist)

“I feel supported by all of the therapists in the office, who make a conscious effort to provide support and help me through tricky situations.” - Whitney Crane (Occupational Therapist)

“Working in the disability sector can feel overwhelming, but I feel well supported in my role. My message to anyone considering a career in the sector with Ability WA is that you are not expected to know everything on the first day. Your caseload is well managed, and you have all the support you need to find your feet”. - Lauren Spada (Occupational Therapist)
