A needs assessment is the next step in the WeCAN Early Intervention Programme (EIP) enrolment process. It is conducted by trained professionals from the WeCAN EIP Needs Assessment team.
Children on the waitlist are scheduled for assessment throughout the year. All parents and regular caregivers are encouraged to attend the assessment with the child.
Aims of Needs Assessment:
- Gather information about child's functioning in autism areas
- Assess child's learning strengths and needs
- Determine suitability for WeCAN EIP
- Provide information to parents on case management
Duration of assessment: Approximately 45 mins.
Cost of assessment: $32.10 (inclusive of 7% GST)
Outcome of assessment: The EIP team will discuss intervention options with the family. If the team finds the child suitable for the programme, we will place him/her on our waitlist untill a suitable vacancy arises. Parents will be contacted as soon as the placement arises for the child.
