Information about Forms and Paperwork (e.g. NDIS & AARA forms) 

The focus of clinicians consulting from CDN is on face-to-face clinical consultations in a timely and structured manner. We recognise that for the children seen at CDN there is often a need to interface with other agencies, and additional forms and paperwork may be required to support this (e.g. NDIS and the Education System.) Clinicians are happy to assist with completion of forms and paperwork, but as their primary focus is clinical work with the children they see in consultations, there can be some delay in getting forms and paperwork completed.

Please allow at least a minimum of a two-week turn around for requests relating to forms and paperwork. Please note this could be longer if clinicians are on leave, as your normal treating clinician will be required to complete paperwork and forms. A fee normally applies if forms or paperwork completion is requested outside of a clinical consultation. Please discuss this with our Administration staff. 

In order to complete forms, the clinician will need to have seen the child that the forms relate to within the last 3 - 6 months, or as requested by your clinician. If the clinician has not seen the child within this period, or if requested by the clinician, then you will need to book a consultation to ensure the information is accurate and relevant. If forms and paperwork are required urgently we would suggest that you book a consultation so your clinician has the allocated time to complete forms and paperwork.

A clinicians relationship is with families and their children, not schools or other third parties. Forms or paperwork will not be processed at the request of schools or others unless parents have been involved in the communication and requested us to do so.

Clinicians will not sign blank forms. Please ensure all relevant details have been completed prior to sending the forms to your clinician at the CDN. Forms or paperwork requests can be sent to the practice email address:  To ensure an efficient process please include the child's FULL name, date of birth and clinician involved in the subject line and/ or email message.
