Service Agreement and Service Booking

We will ask you to share your NDIS Plan before your first assessment appointment. We will send you an email with a copy of the Mater NDIS service agreement and other information about our service to read before your first assessment session.
First assessment appointment
Families will be asked to book their child’s first appointment as an assessment. Early childhood assessments use family centred practices and this will include asking you questions about your child, and your routines and activities at home and in the community.
The first assessment appointment will include time with your therapist and additional time for your therapist to review any assessment findings (+/- assessment scoring and interpretation) and to make a progress note.
Second appointment: Early Childhood Services Support Plan
Mater Health and Wellness is committed to using family centred practices and building strong relationships with families because we recognise the significant role families have in their young child’s development.
To develop an NDIS Early Childhood Services Support Plan we will request a session to discuss and explain any assessment finding and to take time to answer your questions. We will also ask more about your child’s strengths, preferences and your family routines. This will ensure your NDIS Early Childhood Services Support Plan will outline your child’s current performance and how we will work together to achieve new performance goals.
It is important that you read the plan and notify us if your Services Support Plan needs to be updated or changed.
You are welcome to share your Services Support Plan with your Early Childhood Partner and other people that support you and your child.
