Functional Assessment for Psychosocial Disability
In this webinar, we take a closer look at OT functional assessment processes, and standardised and non-standardised assessment tools, for NDIS participants with psychosocial disability due to mental health conditions. We’ll unpack the OT assessment toolbox and explore matching assessments to client need. AND we’ll discuss how to incorporate assessment results into your functional assessment reports, in a manner that is compatible with NDIS concepts, principles and expectations.
