Immediate Needs Assessments

For those individuals who have sustained an injury, early rehabilitative intervention is essential to ensure they have the best chance of maximising their recovery.

Tania Brown Ltd has extensive experience of undertaking immediate needs assessments (INAs) under the Rehabilitation Code 2007, for adults and children who have sustained catastrophic injuries of all types including brain injury and spinal cord injury.

One of our experienced team of specialists will visit the individual at their home or other familiar environment and will assess the nature of their injuries both physical and psychological to determine their immediate needs in terms of care, equipment and accommodation. This information will be used to prepare a report which details the costs of the support and services required.
