Prior to the assessment you will be provided with a questionnaire to help us gain more information about you or your child. An assessment session goes for up to 1 hour and can include standardised and/or non-standardised assessments (those that can be scored and those that are based on observations). Following the assessment you will receive a summary report that outlines the outcomes of the assessment including any scores obtained during the assessment and goals/recommendations for therapy.
Yes! All Abilities is registered NDIS provider. It is helpful if you bring your NDIS plan to your first appointment.
There are a variety of plans available through General Practitioners or Paediatricians that you or your child may be able to use to claim rebates or bulk billed sessions through. Contact your GP to discuss your child’s eligibility for these plans. If you are claiming bulk billed services please note all sessions run for 20 minutes only and you need to inform our staff when you schedule the appointment. Please bring your plan with you on the day of your appointment.
