What happens in a functional assessment?
A functional assessment is a process an occupational therapist will assess NDIS participants to understand the various needs which they can assist the participant. Functional assessment is a collaborative process where the OT will be observing the participant’s behaviour, asking relevant questions about their condition and lifestyle and listening to family stories. These assessments will help the OT analyse the participants’ skills and behaviour in a natural setting and best understand their daily routine and challenges across various settings and situations.
Occupational therapists are equipped to support clients, with empathy, to build skills in a number of areas, such as:
- Gross and fine motor coordination
- Fatigue management, and
- Life skills
- Adapting to workplaces
Our team members are able to prescribe OT equipment and devices, where necessary, to make living easier.
