The assessors are a range of registered health professionals including, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech pathologists, clinical and registered psychologists.
Assessors will also complete the training required by the NDIA, which outlines service standards, quality assurance and the complaints processes.
The assessors will be using our toolkit, which includes globally recognised, standardised assessment tools used by the health and allied health sector for many years.
The assessment tools are disability-neutral. This means they focus on your strengths, your environment and your capacity to undertake everyday tasks and activities.
The assessment tools don’t rely on a diagnosis for information, because the purpose of an independent assessment is to understand your impairment and level of function, instead of focussing on your disability.
