Disability Assessment Services
At Rehab Management, we are specialists in the provision of assessment services for people with Disability, with a track record of over ten years of service provision. With 56 offices throughout Australia, we are never too far away.
We support people living with a disability and their families accessing assessment services across two major Government programs:
- Those requiring assessments (Independent Assessment Panel) who are accessing the National Disability Insurance scheme (NDIS)
- Individuals who are participants in the in the Disability Employment services (DES) program, who require workplace assessments to ensure sustained employment which is implemented through the National Panel of Assessors
Independent Assessment Panel under the NDIS
Rehab Management has been appointed to provide capacity assessments for the NDIA as a member of the Independent Assessment Panel, the service will commence mid-2021.
Individuals who are applying to join the NDIS and existing NDIS participants who are having a plan review are required to undertake standardised assessments to provide an understanding of their capacity, including how well they are able to function at home and in the community, as well as the overall impact of disability on daily life.
These assessments assist the NDIA to make objective, equitable decisions relating to scheme access and to plan for funding requirements. Rehab Management works with the individual, their family and carer to ensure that the provision of the assessments are timely and conducted at a location that suits the individual and family. We understand that assessments can be stressful and our focus at Rehab Management is to ensure every person we engage with is supported through the process.
National Panel of Assessors (NPA)
Since 2010, we have provided disability assessment services for the Department of Social Services under the National Panel of Assessors (NPA). The National Panel of Assessors (NPA) is part of Disability Employment Services (DES).
As a member of the NPA, you may be referred to us by your DES (Disability Employment Services) provider to undergo a workplace assessment.
This may include one of the following:
Workplace Modification Scheme Assessments
Through the DSS Employment Assistance Fund, we conduct workplace assessments to identify suitable adjustments to accommodate people with physical and/or mental health conditions.
We assess workers with a disability where a Disability Employment Service Provider determines that the worker may need ongoing support in the workplace to retain their job.
Wage Scheme Assessments
We conduct independent workplace productivity assessments for employers wishing to employ people with disability under the government’s Supported Wage System provisions.
Rehab Management Difference
We aim to provide exceptional services for everyone we work with including individuals with Disability, government programs and employers.
