Schools can refer students for assessment to see if they are eligible for funding under the Program for Students with Disabilities.
The assessment categories are:
- intellectual disability
- severe language disorder with critical educational needs.
Assessments on behalf of students under these two categories must be completed through the service.
All assessments are conducted by qualified and fully registered psychologists and speech pathologists.
