Specialist Disability Accommodation
We complete funding assessments for NDIS participants who want to access Specialist Disability Accommodation funding.
What is Specialist Disability Accommodation?
Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is housing that has been specifically designed to meet the needs of people who have an extreme functional impairment or very high support needs.
The NDIS provides SDA funding for participants who meet specific eligibility criteria. The funding aims to provide these participants with more choice as to where they live, while also ensuring those homes support their accessibility needs.
SDA Funding Assessments
At Therapy Focus our occupational therapists complete assessments for National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) participants who want to access SDA funding. These therapists are highly knowledgeable and experienced in complex home modifications and can provide a detailed report that addresses the eligibility criteria for SDA funding.
During the assessment process our occupational therapists work closely with support coordinators to ensure that the participant’s Housing Plan is complete and ready for submission to the NDIS.
This report, called the Occupational Therapy Housing Assessment Report, includes the following:
- Screening of existing documentation and assessment reports
- Full functional assessment that evaluates a participant’s goals and how SDA funding can support these goals
- Clinical interpretation of findings relating to the SDA eligibility criteria
- Delivery of the report to the support coordinator in order for a Housing Plan to be developed
