  • Cost: TBC
  • Presenter: Christine Higgins NZROT

Christine is an NZ trained OT with over 30 years work experience in both NZ and the UK. She has worked part time as a Community OT for the past 15 years, where housing modifications are an acknowledged area of her expertise.

This one day course is intended for those new to prescribing home adaptations, or those wishing to improve their skills in this area.

It is designed to be a perquisite for subsequent courses which will focus on measuring the existing environment, planning the adaptation and common environmental solutions.

Occupational Therapists attending this course will:

  • Be able to describe the common functional consequences of major disabling conditions most likely to require home adaptations
  • Develop key report writing skills for funding applications
  • Reflect on the main areas to assess a typical home environment
  • Be introduced to basic building terminology as it relates to home adaptations

To lodge your advance expression of interest in this course, please email Christinehigg@gmail.com.

Include your full name, phone numbers and describe your level of experience in this field (50 word max).



"Christine is fantastic at is preparing you for telephone interviews, giving advice on salary grades etc. as the job descriptions seem to be very generic. Christine is able to 'fill in the gaps', so to speak, as she has a good knowledge of the health boards, how they operate, the services etc. and can give you supporting information. I would definitely recommend them, they listen to what you want and really do try to match your requirements."

— Maya, Occupational Therapist from the United Kingdom
