There are activities that all children of a particular age are unable to do on their own. For example, no infants can bathe themselves. The assessor looks at what activities of daily living children without disabilities can do independently.
PCAs can help children with instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs). This may include light housekeeping and laundry for health and hygiene reasons integral to PCA services for the sole benefit of the child. These IADLs must be listed on the PCA Assessment and Service Plan. More information is available on PCA services.
