Reasonable and Necessary Supports include:

1. Related to the participant’s disability: The support must be related to the participant’s disability, and it must help them to achieve their goals, objectives and aspirations and maximize their independence. At OT trauma tools we develop specific programs that are targeted at psychosocial disabilities.

2. Evidence-based: The support must be based on current evidence and best practice.

OT Trauma tools use evidenced-based strategies in our programs. Some techniques and strategies we focus on include.

  • Goal-setting and problem-solving: An occupational therapist can work with the individual to set goals and develop a plan for achieving those goals, as well as problem-solve any barriers to achieving them.
  • Skills training: Occupational therapy can teach skills for managing symptoms of mental illness, such as stress management, relaxation techniques, and coping strategies.
  • Routine development: An occupational therapist can help an individual develop a daily routine that promotes structure and consistency in their life, which can be particularly beneficial for individuals with mood disorders or anxiety.
  • Executive functioning strategies: strategies to improve their ability to plan, organize, initiate, and complete tasks. Executive functioning refers to a set of cognitive skills that are necessary for managing daily life activities, such as time management, decision-making, and problem-solving.
  • Sensory modulation: An occupational therapist can provide sensory modulation techniques to help individuals manage sensory processing issues related to mental illness.

3. Cost-effective: The support must be considered cost-effective in relation to the outcomes it will achieve for the participant.

4. Value for money: The support must represent value for money, and the cost of the support must be reasonable in relation to the benefits it will provide to the participant.
