Rewire is a multidisciplinary therapy program that assists people with acquired brain injury (ABI) to achieve the goals most meaningful to them, and to build a solid foundation for a bright future.
Rewire helps people to:
- Achieve their goals as quickly as possible
- Build capacity and relearn skills through neuroplasticity
- Enhance their mental wellbeing and resilience
- Overcome challenges in daily living
- Increase their independence and regain employment
- Connect with the community and pursue meaningful activities
Why is Rewire a great choice for community-based therapy?
A truly person-centred approach
The participant is at the heart of Rewire and they are in the driver’s seat. Their individual needs and feedback guide our practice.
Cutting-edge therapy based on the latest research
Our understanding of how the brain can change and rewire is growing all the time. Where previously it was thought that the brain was like a hard-wired machine with limited capacity for change, we now know just how ‘plastic’ it really is. Rewire uses evidence-based therapy techniques that drive neuroplastic change.
A holistic focus
For best outcomes, therapy efforts must focus on the whole person, not isolated parts. Doing so unlocks powerful synergistic effects; for example, cognitive abilities improve when people are in a better place emotionally. We also explore the diverse range of factors that contribute to a person’s wellbeing, such as eating well, regular exercise, and getting a good night’s sleep.
Access to an exceptional team of professionals
Brain injuries are complex and every injury is different, making it crucial that the therapy team has extensive experience in working with people with ABI. With Rewire, participants gain access to a group of professionals who have honed their skills over many years, equipping them with the expertise to deliver outstanding results.
We support the support network
We understand that a brain injury presents challenges for family members and loved ones, and that they need support too. That is why Rewire provides counselling, information and advice to those who will be alongside the participant in their journey.
Who can join?
Rewire is designed for people who have sustained an acquired brain injury and who are under 70 years of age.
Who runs Rewire?
Rewire is run by a team of experienced professionals working across a broad range of disciplines. The team includes:
- Speech pathologists
- Occupational therapists

Each participant also has a dedicated coordinator who works closely with participants and their support networks throughout the program.
How is the program structured?
Rewire is an intensive program designed for those who seek to achieve their goals as quickly as possible, and therapy may take place multiple days per week. Each participant’s program is different, as it reflects their specific goals and circumstances.
