NEPSY-II

Adaptive Behaviour Assessment System III (ABAS-III)

  • The ABAS-III is an assessment of adaptive skills functioning, assisting clinicians in determining how well an individual is responding to daily demands from the environment in a range of conceptual, social and practical areas. It is especially useful for evaluating people with developmental delays, autism spectrum disorders, intellectual disability, learning disabilities, neuropsychological disorders, and sensory or physical impairments. The ABAS is used as a component of assessment to determine eligibility for the NDIS and for applications for school funding for children with additional needs.

 

In order to apply for additional funding to assist your child in the school environment you will require:

  • An assessment and diagnosis from a Psychologist
  • The ABAS III to be completed by the Psychologist, and a SCAN meeting with your child’s school – with your child’s diagnostic report and ABAS III results – so funding approval can be applied for.
