Every individual with a disability is different, so why use ONE diet or approach? We don’t.
The AYS approach to nutrition is individualised to each person and draws on a comprehensive multidisciplinary team to support participants, families and carers to reach their goals.
What is a dietitian?
A dietitian can assess your nutritional status and provide recommendations and education to address any nutrition concerns. A dietitian is an expert in human nutrition and the regulation of diet.
AYS can work with participants under the NDIS to improve their health, well being and independence. We can work with those who are self-managed or managed through an agency. Our Accredited Practising Dietitian offers a person centred approach to the NDIS and tailors treatment to the individual’s functional needs, budget, preferences and goals including those with complex disability nutrition requirements.
