A Functional Capacity Evaluation or Assessment can assist with ensuring participants have the right level of support and funding to achieve their goals and needs, so the participant can get more out of life today.
Our approach is to ensure the purpose and scope of the assessment is clear and undertaken in the environment selected by the participant within the timeframe agreed upon.
Ability Action Australia therapists are trained to ensure they conduct objective assessments using standardised measures where required. Taking into account the individual’s function, supports and their daily living, vocational and community abilities, and aspirations.
Assessments include the face-to-face component, communication with involved parties (where there is consent and a requirement) and a report that is provided to the participant and the NDIA. The process will assist with decisions made regarding the type and level of funding and supports under an NDIS plan.

What People Say About Us
NDIS Functional Capacity Assessments
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a way of supporting people with permanent and significant disability. The NDIS is designed to give individuals greater choice and control over when, where and how their funded supports are provided. The specific support and funding available is based on each individual’s specific needs. You can find out more about what therapeutic supports are funded by referring to the NDIS website.
Ability Action Australia has the capability to provide NDIS Functional Capacity Assessments Australia wide.
