We understand that when referring your clients for specialised assessments, you need to trust that the supplier you select is reliable, skilled, efficient and able to produce reports that tell you exactly what you need to know.
TBI Health’s assessors are thoroughly trained to ensure that they are aware of your needs. They have in-depth knowledge and understanding of the relevant assessment contract, the differences between injury-related needs and non-injury-related needs and they can identify a range of options for you to choose from to address your clients’ unmet needs.
Social Rehabilitation Needs Assessments
Integrated Rehabilitation Assessment
This type of assessment involves a thorough review of how the client is coping and what their needs are in a range of areas, such as household tasks, personal care, childcare, transport and social engagement.
Single Discipline Assessment
A Single Discipline Assessment is a more focussed assessment, to look at a specific issue (e.g. an Occupational Therapist Single Discipline Assessment for a client having difficulty with personal care tasks, childcare or household tasks or a Physiotherapist Single Discipline Assessment for a client having difficulties with balance, transfers or walking).
Housing Modification Assessments
A housing modification assessment is completed by an Occupational Therapist with specialised skills, knowledge and experience. The Occupational Therapist visits the client’s home to assess whether they have any issues accessing the home, moving around inside the home and accessing/using facilities such as the kitchen and bathroom. The assessor will identify whether any equipment could be provided to facilitate access and use of the facilities in the home, or whether any permanent modifications to the home are required.
Education-based Rehabilitation Assessments
An education-based rehabilitation can be completed for injured children or teenagers who attend an educational facility and require injury-related support. The type of rehabilitation professional completing the assessment will depend on the client’s needs – it could be an Occupational Therapist, a Physiotherapist, a Speech Language Therapist or an Educational Psychologist. The assessor will usually meet with the child or young person, their family/whanau or legal guardian and a representative of the educational facility. A wide range of factors may be looked at, allowing the assessor to identify the child’s injury-related needs along with options for the referrer to implement to allow the child to develop or maintain engagement in their education.
