At Beelieve Paediatric Therapy, our Functional Assessments, sometimes referred by the NDIS as a Functional Needs Assessment or Functional Capacity Assessment, are a valuable resource designed to provide comprehensive insights into your child's capabilities. The Functional Assessment is instrumental for assessing your child's needs, adapting to changing circumstances, and seeking additional funding through NDIS. It is also a critical step when consulting a pediatrician for a formal diagnosis.
Please note that the actual assessment process takes approximately 2 hours, with an additional 10 hours dedicated to meticulous reporting and analysis.
Our commitment to gathering and evaluating as much information about your child as possible is what sets our service apart. Given the thorough nature of a Functional Assessment, it typically involves an extensive series of questions and discussions.
To ensure the process is as comfortable and convenient as possible for both you and your child, we occasionally divide it into two separate sessions. If the assessment's comprehensive nature seems overwhelming, we are happy to work with you over the phone or via telehealth for information collection, allowing you to avoid discussing your child's difficulties in their presence. Please feel free to let us know if this option suits your preferences.
Throughout the process, we will conduct in-person assessments and observations with your child. Additionally, we will provide you with specific assessments to complete. This multifaceted approach ensures that we obtain a wealth of information to inform our final report.
Our Functional Assessments delve into your child's capabilities and how they engage in day-to-day activities and within their community. We understand the unique needs of each child and tailor our assessments accordingly, ensuring a personalized approach to better address their specific requirements.
Trust us to provide valuable insights and expert guidance to help your child reach their full potential.
