Nirma writing therapy reports at H-L Therapy
The H-L therapists are experienced and trained in conducting a range of interdisciplinary and mental health assessments, whilst using up-to-date, evidence-based assessment instruments. H-L Therapy assessments may be useful to support the NDIS Plan Reviews. For example when there is a need to provide evidence about the complexity of the situation and the need for additional services. In addition to this, our assessments and reports may also be useful to provide information about functional difficulties related to disability, as required to become approved for NDIS services.
The range of assessments provided by H-L Therapy include:
General Functional Assessments identify functional needs in a wide range of paraprofessional and professional areas, such as showering, dressing, feeding, foot care, skin integrity, oral care, medication management, continence, toileting, mobility, transfers, food intake, nutrition, swallowing, communication, social skills, interests, memory, affect, cognition, washing, shopping, transport, communication, social skills general emotional wellbeing, mental health, etc).
Bio-psychological assessments include assessments of biological, psychological, and sociocultural factors, personal strengths, and barriers to therapy. For example, some assessed factors may include medical and psychiatric history, diagnosis, substance use, type and effect of medication, ability to self administer medication, mental health assessments and observations, personal history, family history, social connectivity in the community, individual goals, and steps to progress with the goals. The bio-psychosocial assessments often include a visual representation of family and systemic networks in the form of genograms and ecograms.
Mental Health Assessments can be similar to biopsychosocial assessments but contain more detailed information describing the results of mental health examination, and descriptions of how the mental health status is affecting the person’s everyday function in such domains as personal care, activities of daily living, general social interactions with others and within the community. In addition to this, Mental health assessments also highlight the risk to the person’s wellbeing and that of other people, and recommendations on how to best mitigate these risk.

Our specialised functional, biopsychosocial and mental health assessments and reports are provided upon request. They are either stand-alone or in addition to two standard reports required within the duration of each NDIS plan.
The two standard reports that are usually completed by the H-L therapist during each NDIS Plan period summarise the person’s unique situation, his or her strengths, barriers, risks, and goals. They include:
Therapy Plan Reports are written within the first three weeks of the NDIS therapy program. This type of report summarises the issues and therapy modalities, goals, steps, and processes to measure goal progress
Therapy Review Reports are being written in support of the NDIS plan reviews. They discuss the progress with goal achievement and recommendations for therapy needs to inform future NDIS funding.
