Final assessment tasks

Part A – Questions

Purpose

You will demonstrate a sound knowledge of the unit requirements in your responses.

Instructions to the candidate

All questions must be answered satisfactorily for Part A to be completed satisfactorily.

There is no restriction on the length of the question responses, or time restriction in completing the assessment.

You must complete all questions unassisted by the assessor or other personnel, but may refer to reference material as needed.

Resources required

Assessment conditions

Skills must have been demonstrated in the disabilities workplace with the addition of simulations and scenarios where the full range of contexts and situations have not been provided in the workplace.

The following conditions must be met for this unit:

• Access to individualised plans and any equipment outlined in the plan

Overall, assessment must involve real interactions with people with disability, their families/carers/relevant others and the person’s individualised plan.

Assessors must satisfy the Standards for Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) 2015/AQTF mandatory competency requirements for assessors.

Reasonable adjustment

If you do not wish to respond to the questions in written form, an interview may be used as an alternative approach if negotiated with your assessor.

Case study (questions 1–5)

Jamal is Kevin’s support worker and he’s in the middle of a busy day. Kevin is a young person with physical disabilities who uses a wheelchair for mobility. He has just joined a wheelchair basketball team and is excited about the sport.

Just before lunch, Kevin shows up at Jamal’s workplace with a basketball in hand, wanting to show Jamal what he’s learnt. Although Kevin doesn’t have an appointment, Jamal wants to support Kevin’s new interest and expanding skills, so he lets Kevin show him a few moves in the parking lot while he eats lunch.

Kevin is thrilled with the speed and mobility of wheelchair basketball and has been practising high-speed spins, turns, catches and throws. In his excitement, Kevin doesn’t notice a bump in the parking lot pavement and he falls. Although he only receives a minor scrape, Jamal realises that this isn’t the best time or place to support Kevin’s interest.

Before he leaves, Kevin gives Jamal a team shirt with his numbers on the back and invites him to his next game.

Case study (questions 6–8)

Maline (a support worker) receives an angry phonecall from Frankie, who has been trying to get an appointment for several weeks to discuss some changes she wants to make to her services. Maline had meant to get back to Frankie weeks ago, but got caught up in her busy workload. She thanks Frankie for the reminder and they make an appointment for the next day.

During the meeting, Frankie asks Maline about the research she was going to do about her options for training and employment, based on the email she sent last week. At their last meeting, they had discussed Frankie’s wish to get back into employment after her injury, and she had compiled a list of ideas that she emailed to Maline. Maline had been so busy that she had not looked at Frankie’s service plan before the meeting, and although she had seen the email, her promise to do this research completely slipped her mind.

Maline sincerely apologises to Frankie for these omissions and thanks her for the work she’s done in investigating ideas for training and employment. They agree to meet weekly for the next month to fully explore Frankie’s options and to make sure she receives the services she needs.

Kate has an intellectual disability. Her younger sister Ginny is her primary carer and has legal guardianship over Kate, specifically regarding her financial and legal decisions. Kate is provided a certain amount of money per week for discretionary spending, which she usually spends on food treats, going out with her friends and art materials.
