Accessing Medical and Dental Services

Many people with high support needs, complex communication needs and/or who at times have behaviours which challenge others can experience a range of barriers to accessing health services. Microboards Australia support individual microboards, and others interested in planning for better health outcomes, to explore planning for health and wellbeing through tailored workshops and individual coaching. Contact us for more information. An introduction to some of the approaches to health and wellbeing planning which families have shared, and our report on Delivering Better Health Outcomes for People with High Support Needs and/or Challenging Behaviour and their Families and Carers, is available via the link below.
