Occupational Therapy

Functional Capacity Evaluation

The therapists at BePositive are highly experienced in the assessment of disability and the impact that disability may have upon daily functional performance. This assessment is known as Functional Capacity Evaluation.

A Functional Capacity Evaluation will assess your daily functional ability for your self-care activities, your domestic care tasks, and your capability within the community. The aim of the evaluation will be to determine any barriers that you may be experiencing and make recommendations to improve your performance wherever possible.

The assessment will support the direction of the therapy or services that we will undertake with you.

Housing Assessment

Our occupational therapists are highly skilled in undertaking assessment of your housing needs and submitting applications to the NDIS. A housing assessment would consider the best housing option for you, considering your circumstances in line with the NDIS eligibility criteria. Our assessment would take the direction of either:
• SDA (Specialist Disability Accommodation)
• SIL (Supported Independent Living)
• ILO (Individualised Living Options)
• Mainstream Housing

Where possible and following approval from the NDIS, we will support you to transition into your new living arrangement.

Specialised equipment may be required to improve your independence, your ability to manage day to day tasks or most importantly to improve your future!

We will offer an in-home assessment with you or arrange for you to trial assistive technology with a reputable supplier.

Assessments include: wheelchair and seating, walking aids, bathroom aids, bedroom aids such as bedding solutions, kitchen aids and eating utensils.
