Specialized Assessments

Needs assessment for personal assistance and technical aids is used to detect occupational performance problems and identify which services the client could benefit from. More specifically, the assessment’s focus is on the client’s difficulties and incapacities to perform their regular daily activities and those activities that are instrumental to their lives. The recommendations could include equipment to reduce the disabilities and assist the client with activities that could not be done safely or at all by the client on their own.

The duration of the assessment is indeterminate but varies between one and a half and three hours depending of the complexity of the client’s situation.

Appointments can be arranged within ten business days following the referral. The report is submitted within ten business days following the day of the assessment.
