The National Disability Insurance Scheme can certainly be complicated to understand and access for many people. When you apply you will need to be able to demonstrate several factors including: Diagnosis of Disability and Identification of how much this affects a persons life.
As well as several other factors which are identified in the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act (2013). Further to these points identifying what supports the person requires – and what is ‘reasonable and necessary’ as defined by the Act are vital.
As with all assessments it requires time to interrupt testing results and create a report identifying the required factors. This process occurs after the clinical assessment. Please contact us for a quote for this service.
Diagnostic assessment is a form of assessment that allows a Psychologist to determine a person's individual strengths, weaknesses, knowledge, skills, symptoms and impairments to lifestyle. It is primarily used to diagnose difficulties and to provide a diagnosis recognised using the Diagnostic and Statistics Manual or International Classification of Disease to inform treatment and interventions to assist the person.
These sessions require a substantial amount of time to complete the interpretation, formulation and report in addition to the amount of time that we spend together doing the assessment. The cost of these sessions varies based on the needs of the person and situation, please contact us for a quote.
