NDIS Specific Assessments

Housing Assessment SDA (Specialist Disability Accommodation)

SDA Assessment involves an extensive evaluation of your current and future needs, and provides a recommendation to NDIS regarding your eligibility for specialist disability accommodation. It refers to accommodation for participants who require specialist housing solutions to cater for their extreme functional impairment or very high support needs.


Housing Assessment SIL (Supported Independent Living)

Supported Independent Living (SIL) refers to any funded service support that enables a greater level of independent living. An SIL Assessment involves the OT providing a comprehensive assessment of your functional status and the amount or types of supports required to maintain and improve your daily living standards.

The NDIS have specified the criteria for this assessment.


Participants eligible for this assessment may be:

  • Living with parents
  • In a shared residence with other NDIS participants
  • Living alone
  • Wanting to move from your current accommodation to a more independent and age appropriate accommodation


SIL can be provided both in non-SDA residences or SDA residences.


Pre-Planning Assessment

The pre-planning service provides details regarding the client’s disability and the impact it has on independence and ability to achieve goals, and the future need for NDIS funded services.

Participants find this service particularly useful when they are:

  • Transferring to the NDIS for the first time and require support and evidence to provide within their planning session
  • On an existing NDIS plan and their individual needs or goals change or if an NDIS plan review is pending


If you would like to book an appointment with one of our Occupational Therapists for an assessment, or to find out more about the service, please contact our office on 1300 511 887.
