Thorough Evaluations for Intellectual Disabilities

Helping you can access daily support through the NDIS

Assistance with daily life is one of the NDIS services our dedicated support coordinators can help you access. It’s a holistic support service designed to empower you in your everyday routine, ensuring you can live your life as freely as possible.

An intellectual disability is a neurodevelopmental condition characterised by significant limitations in intellectual functioning and adaptive behaviour, affecting social, practical, and conceptual skills. It is diagnosed through standardised testing and assessments.

An intellectual disability assessment is important because it helps in accurately diagnosing the condition, which is essential for developing effective support and intervention plans. Early diagnosis can improve educational and developmental outcomes, allowing individuals to reach their full potential.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my child needs an intellectual disability assessment?

If your child exhibits signs such as significant delays in cognitive development, difficulties with learning and problem-solving, or challenges in daily living skills, it may be beneficial to seek an intellectual disability assessment. Consulting with your paediatrician or a specialist can help determine if an assessment is necessary.

The assessment process typically involves a series of evaluations conducted by a team of professionals, including psychologists, educational specialists, and other relevant experts. It includes interviews with parents, observation of the child, and standardised tests to assess various aspects of cognitive and adaptive functioning.

The duration of the assessment process can vary, but it generally takes several hours spread over multiple sessions. This allows for a comprehensive evaluation and ensures that all aspects of the child’s cognitive and adaptive abilities are thoroughly examined.

After the assessment is completed, you will receive a detailed report outlining the findings and recommendations. This report will guide the next steps, which may include specific therapies, educational support, and resources to help your child. The assessment team will also be available to discuss the results and answer any questions you may have.
