Functional Capacity Assessment
Paediatric Functional Capacity Assessments are used to identify which supports are necessary for children, young people and their families to make progress on their identified goals.
Children and young people may require a Functional Capacity Assessment when requesting access to the National Disability Insurance Scheme(NDIS), or to complete a review of their NDIS plan. It is important to understand that the NDIS focus on everyday function rather than a diagnosis of an impairment or disability. A common misconception is that a chronic diagnosis or disability alone gets you accepted as a participant in the scheme.
A Functional Capacity Assessment will help to identify the link between your child’s disability/condition and how it affects their day-to-day life. It serves to create a complete picture of how a person manages tasks and activities, and the overall impact the disability/condition has on their life. These reports are comprehensive and include a thorough assessment of functional capacity in the key areas of:
Functional Capacity Assessments are unique for each child and will generally take between 4-8hrs of billable clinician hours (193.96/hr).
NOTE: Kids That Go are not able to provide Functional Capacity Assessments for children with complex physical needs. Please complete an enquiry form if you would like assistance.
A continence assessment is a detailed assessment of how the child’s bladder and bowel are working. It looks at any issues the child has with getting to, or using, the toilet.
You can expect that a Continence Assessment will require 2 appointments. The first will be with the parent/s or caregivers and the second will possibly include the child, depending on age and capacity.
The appointments will cover areas such as:
- what are the child’s current skills?
- what continence aids are currently being used?
- which supporting equipment is used at home (eg, waterproof bedding)?
- set capacity building goals for NDIS planning
Continence Assessments generally take between 3-5 hours for our clinicians to complete ($193.96/hr).
