Rex  Chan
Position: Physiotherapist

Rex graduated from University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy) Honours in 2013. After graduation, he worked in the adult acute hospital and rehabilitation setting before starting work in the disability sector through the NSW Department of Ageing, Disability and Home Care.

Prior to joining Cerebral Palsy Alliance (CPA), Rex worked with children and adults with a range of intellectual and physical disabilities such as cerebral palsy, Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and stroke.

He joined CPA in 2015 and is finding the work rewarding because he is able to provide hope and solutions for clients who are having difficulties with everyday activities. Rex tackles these challenges by creating a plan with the client and working alongside them as they move towards achieving the goal. He also celebrates their wins when a client reaches or, as often happens, exceeds their goal.

He has developed a special interest in assistive technology, particular manual wheelchairs, standing frames, orthotics and walking aids. He also has expertise in hydrotherapy, serial casting and working with infants who are at risk, or recently diagnosed, with cerebral palsy.

Rex has been impressed with the comprehensive clinician training provided by CPA and how it increases his expertise and confidence in working with clients. He also appreciates being able to collaborate with colleagues to ensure he delivers evidence-based therapy that ensure the best outcomes for clients.
