    yerp its an assesment of what you need to do extra for a child every day like
    Administer medication, change a peg tube, suction trachey, hook up feeds, test blood, wheelchair transfer, moniter o2 and HR, how many sezirues they have a day why you cant work when there at school etc

    it also has a section for thee diagnosis and a section for the dr to fill out as well

    Yerp and they posted it to them a few days after I lodged mine in the Centrelink office on the 10th? I'm pretty sure. I asked had they received it and they said they had but it was an additional form ?

    Oh also another thing I was on the faschia website and found that carers allowance is now automatically assessed based on carers payment eligibility I currently receive carers allowance so hope that if I'm correct ill qualify for carers

    you need to qualify for career allowance to get faschia funding career payment is differnt assesment higher needs,

    DD qualifies for me to get career payment because of her high needs but we dont get it cause of DHs income, its easy to get career alowance any kid with a mild disability gets it.

    What is your little ones condition ?

    Ok. My DS has
    ADHD ,ODD OCD and expressive delayed language disorder
    And asthma he has bed wetting every night he needs help with washing brushing teeth dressing toileting eating supervision constantly for fear of him hurting himself or others he has trouble expressing himself speech wise if you dint know him well he is difficult to understand and his behaviors are violent difficult to manage he's on Concerta and it helps manage it better than when he wasn't medicated I'm on single parent so the income part isn't a prob I was under the impression that carers payment and allowance were one in the Same as for qualifying I'm currently getting carers allowance for him and pead said I should qualify for carers payment due to having bub at home also and needing to go to the school a fair bit to give his meds he won't let teachers and for his behavior
