A disability team leader oversees a disability support team in an effort to provide care and assistance to those needing help living their everyday lives. Disability team leaders delegate responsibilities, monitor patient or client intake and assessment and determine how to best provide aid. In addition to supervising the disability support teams, team leaders will also often provide hands-on assistance. The position requires strong personal, organisational and communication skills.
Disability team leaders need to understand not only what resources and options are available for helping patients and clients, but must also be equipped to handle the administrative duties that come with running a team. This includes scheduling, checking in with team members throughout the week and helping find solutions to their issues.
