Functional Capacity Assessment (OT)

Access Request Assessment (psychology)

NDIS Access Report & Assessment

The Access Request and assessment process is designed to understand you as an individual, taking into account your unique strengths, challenges, and needs. It's not just about your diagnosis; it's about how you navigate daily life, what support you require, and how the NDIS can assist you in achieving your goals.

It's important to understand that having a confirmation of Autism or a major mental illness does not guarantee automatic entry into the NDIS. Eligibility for NDIS funding is determined by the level and severity of 'functional impairment,' which means how your disability affects your daily life. This is the evidence the NDIS Access Report & Assessment provides, and it will give you the best chance of being accepted as an NDIS participant.

Please see our NDIS Supports page for a beginner's guide on applying to NDIS.

*Note: The NDIS currently considers ADHD to be a 'medical condition' and not a 'disability', and so an application to the NDIS on the basis of an individual having ADHD, even when we can demonstrate functional impairments, is highly unlikely to meet their eligibility criteria.

Functional Capacity Assessments

For Autistic clients or clients with psychosocial (mental health) disabilities who are NDIS participants, we can provide an assessment of your functional capacity to provide evidence of your disability and demonstrate your need for disability services across your lifetime.

Fees for functional capacity assessment are $2,500.
