The Instrument for the Classification and Assessment of Support Needs (I-CAN) v5 is a support needs assessment, planning and resource allocation tool designed to assess and guide support delivery for people with disabilities including people with mental health concerns. Version 5 of I-CAN has improved user friendliness, flexibility and wider applicability. Research shows I-CAN is a valid, reliable tool.
It provides a support services and family friendly holistic assessment conceptually based upon the internationally recognized WHO ICF framework, person-centred approaches and Active Support. Families use the I-CAN when applying to NDIS and to coordinate and liaise with support and health professionals. Support services can use the I-CAN for an independent costing estimate (assisting the transition to the NDIS), and to ensure quality services, integrated with health care and person-centred plans. Government can use the I-CAN to allocate resources and predict costs. An individual support needs report is generated online which helps guide service delivery and planning.
