The NDIA is piloting the use of functional impact assessment tools with participants aged over seven years with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder, intellectual disability, or psychosocial disability to help determine the impact the disability has on their capacity to participate in community, work and/or social activities. 

The NDIA hopes the pilot will “improve consistency, accuracy and reliability in decision-making, delivering fair plan outcomes and access decisions for all participants.” The functional impact assessment will form part of the supporting evidence the NDIA considers when making its decisions.
