Within our mainstream programs, we include participants of the National Disability Insurance Scheme to build their capacity to increase social and community participation!
Thank you for your interest in our inclusive workshops for all ages and abilities.
At Unity Studios we understand that the NDIS is all about choice and control. We welcome your enquiry and work tirelessly with you to access our programs if that is what you have chosen.
We are NDIS providers under the category, “Innovative Community Participation”. Participant’s plans should include Increased Social and Community Participation within capacity building to access our inclusive programs.
Each and every one of our programs at Unity Studios can be accessed by a person with a disability either independently or with extra support if required.
Introducing Cassandra Jensen!
Cassandra is the Founder, Program Director and Lead Mentor at Unity Studios. Her credentials include a Bachelor of Music, and further post graduate study to become a Secondary Music Teacher. In more recent years Cassandra furthered her teacher training studying Inclusive Education. This means she is qualified to teach music at a secondary level and within the area of Learning Support. Cassandra’s last posting in a school was as Learning Support Coordinator at St Pauls Catholic College, Greystanes. Cassandra now works casually in schools within the Blue Mountains, Penrith and Blacktown area.
We tell you this, not as a matter of self-importance, but to give you a picture of the theory, knowledge, training and experience Cassandra draws from to formulate our programming at Unity Studios.
We work hard to make sure our learning environments are safe, supporting and nurturing. Where people of all ages and abilities can come to learn, grow and socialise at a level each individual is comfortable with.
Some of the benefits we hope to see from our participants in our programs are –
- developing your self identity and individual style
- growing in self confidence as you experience success
- confidence to experiment and try new things in a supportive environment
- practicing different techniques (fine motor skills)
- portfolio building with close guidance of mentors
- a balance of tasks – sometimes self directed learning and other times mentor lead learning
- practicing following instructions
- practicing communication and other social skills (1:1 and within a group)
- learning to give your opinion and accepting advice from others
- practicing being able to receive and accept constructive criticism

The best way to judge the effectiveness and compatibility of our programs would be to book an initial consultation with us.
After the initial consultation if you would live to move forward, we invite you to trial our program.s
Once satisfied that you would like to join our programs, we will formulate an individual program with you, set up a longer term agreement with regular review dates to make sure your program continues to meet your needs and goals.
At Unity Studios, you can also request a yearly report to assist with NDIS planning reviews. We would have liked to include these report costs in our session fees, however, to keep our sessions in line with the NDIS price guide, we have had to separate the pricing of the reports and they can be requested when necessary.
