SDA Funding Assessments

Functional Capacity Assessments for those wanting to access SDA in the NDIS

We provide assessments for participants that want to access Specialist Disability Accomodation (SDA) funding in the NDIS. Our assessments address all criteria required to be presented in a participant’s Housing Plan to test their eligibility for SDA.

The NDIS relies on the advice and professional judgement of allied health practitioners to determine whether NDIS participants receive funding for treatment and for Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA), and the type and level of this funding.

Optimal Therapy can provide comprehensive functional capacity assessments that look into the participants goals so that we can focus on the support needed to to achieve those goals. We work with Support Coordinators to ensure your Housing Plan is competed correctly and addresses all criteria for the NDIS.

  • Our assessments include a screening of existing documentation from NDIS plans, support coordination, doctors, therapists etc to determine likely eligibility for SDA (before commencing full assessment)
  • Full capacity assessment that evaluates participants goals and how an SDA response relates to that

  • We guarantee a person-directed, strengths-based approach
