tailored support services
Creativity Inc’s services are highly dynamic, innovative and diverse; we listen our families and address their needs, particularly within the NDIS climate.
As NDIS registered providers, we deliver tailored support services through the following areas:
Creativity Inc’s Service Coordinator team provides flexible and tailored services to people with a disability aged 0 – 65 years.
Services are provided by a paid support worker who works directly with the individual either in the community or in their home.
Out of school care
Creativity Inc’s Out of School Care team provides after school care and holiday program activities to children and teenagers with a disability.
There are currently two after school care programs for teenagers and children as well as nine holiday program groups.
Creativity Inc’s Weekend activities include group recreational, social and peer support programs for children, teenagers and adults. Programs take place on Fridays and over the weekend.
Programs are either community based or run from one of Creativity Inc’s centres at Hillsdale and Rosebery.
Adult group programs
Running Monday to Friday each week, Creativity Inc provides a range of group programs for adults based upon their interests and abilities.
Importantly, even though the programs are group based, we work to ensure that individual choice, preferences and goals are taken into account when we put people together and when we are planning our activities.
Our group programs are run in the community or at our Rosebery or Hillsdale properties dependent upon need, preferences, opportunity and (sometimes) weather.
Each year Creativity Inc runs camps for teenagers and adults.

Autism Specific Services:
Rapid Prompting Method (RPM)
For most people, listening to information, understanding it, preparing a response and utilising the necessary muscles to communicate that response is a subconscious, reflexive process. But for someone with severe autism, this same process can be a convoluted task where it is extremely difficult to process the sensory information with which they easily become overloaded. Thus, to focus on hearing and seeing, to formulate an appropriate response, and then to complete the motor planning necessary to give that response requires tremendous effort and initiative.
With the Rapid Prompting Method, the teacher matches their pace to the student's speed of self-stimulatory behavior, while continually speaking and requesting student responses, in order to keep the student on task and focused on the lesson at hand. RPM uses a "Teach-Ask" paradigm for eliciting responses through intensive verbal, auditory, visual and/or tactile prompts.
If you would like to know more about this new service, please call the office to speak to our RPM teacher, Greg Padoa, on 02 9311 9200.
The EarlyBird program, developed by the National Autistic Society in England, empowers and supports parents and carers of pre-school children with a diagnosis of autism.
EarlyBird is a three-month parent program combining group learning sessions with individual home visits, where video feedback is used to help parents to combine theory with practice. Families meet and work with other families, learning from and supporting each other. This early intervention program offers parents hope and support to help their child reach their potential.
What are the aims of the program?
•To empower parents/carers
•To support families in the period between diagnosis and starting school
•To help establish good practice in these very important early years of development
