A functional assessment is an overall assessment performed by an occupational therapist. It assesses your function across several domains of health, such as physical, environmental, interpersonal and social function. Identifying function across several domains of health is important in understanding what matters to you and helps understand your likely care requirements and care strategies that would support your function, such as assistive technologies, housing and home modification.
The goal of a functional assessment is to identify the level of function of a client in these domains and to identify and recommend supports that will maximise independence and participation in the most important aspects of our clients lives as defined by them.
Functional Capacity Evaluations can b a major requirement of the NDIS and part of the NDIS journey. Call our team to discuss how we may be a le to assist you!
