LEARNING ABOUT THE NDIS.Who is it for? Who pays the bills? And so forth…NDIS is the acronym for National Disability InsuranceScheme TheNDIS is a program run by the Australian government that aims to provide supports to help people with a disability to live their life and to achieve their goals relating to independence, community participation, education, employment, health and wellbeing.

The NDIS is different to some of the other funding schemes that currently exist in QLD like Better Start and Helping Children with Autism, in that eligibility is not based on a diagnostic label, but upon an individual’s need for help with everyday activities and communication. You can find out more about whether your child might be eligible to participate by completing the Access Checklist on the NDIS website. It is worthwhile to note that if your child currently isn’t eligible for support from any funding program, they may still be eligible to participate in the NDIS. Likewise, just because your child currently receives funding from another program doesn’t mean that they will automatically be eligible to participate in the NDIS. The NDIA will assess everyone’s eligibility independent of the funding they currently receive. This is a challenging process. Let us assist with all of your matriculation needs
