I live and work in Queensland, Australia. Our State Government agency that provides funding for the support of people with disabilities is currently proposing to implement the use of the ICAP (Inventory for Client and Agency Planning) as an assessment to determine the level of support (including State funded support) an individual may require.
Does anyone on the list have experience with the use of this instrument and its effectiveness in identifying support that a person with a disability may require.
My own experience is that adaptive behaviour measures are poor indicators of the likely assistance required by an individual seeking specialist disability support to participate in day to day life.
