Make a Referral

Assessments Australia provides the Program for Students with Disabilities Assessment Service (PSD-AS). This service was previously managed by Lewis and Lewis.

For referrals and queries relating to the PSD-AS, please contact us via email to [email protected] or on (03) 9663 6622.

The following is a brief overview of the referral process;

  • You may contact Assessments Australia to discuss the potential need for an assessment – this can be done via phone or email using the contact details found above.
  • We will discuss the students’ needs and presentation with you in detail to ascertain the appropriateness of an application for funding under the Program for Students with Disabilities (PSD)
  • If the referral is deemed appropriate, a referral pack will be emailed or posted to you, including a Vineland, if required
  • The referral pack is then completed and either posted or emailed back to us
  • We will assess the information provided and follow up where there are any additional questions
  • If we are proceeding to an assessment you will be provided with the Psychologist or Speech Pathologist’s name and an anticipated timeline
  • The assessment process will commence – including parent interviews, assessment session, and feedback session(s)
  • We will email the completed reports to you, including our recommendations as to whether to proceed with an application for the PSD

If you have any questions at all about the above please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
