assessment

Stepping Stones is able to offer families assessment appointments for Autism Spectrum Disorder. These appointments will focus on helping to provide a profile of your child’s unique strengths and weaknesses. The assessment typically involves a series of appointments, which will aim to gather a comprehensive evaluation of your child’s developmental history and to conduct standardised assessment measures.

intervention

Stepping Stones is eligible to provide Psychological services under the Helping Children With Autism Package and FaHCSIA early intervention funding package.

The Helping Children With Autism Package entitles eligible children to receive Medicare rebates for up to four sessions when they have been referred by a Paediatrician or Psychiatrist for further assessment for Autistic Spectrum Disorder, or up to twenty sessions of early intervention treatment.

The FaHCSIA early intervention funding package entitles eligible children to access up to $12 000 of funding toward early intervention services. To be eligible for the early intervention funding package, a child must have been seen by an Autism Advisor and deemed eligible to access the program before their sixth birthday. The $12,000 in funding can be used until the child's seventh birthday to a maximum of $6,000 per financial year.
