The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support for Australians with disability, their families and carers. The NDIS provides children and adults diagnosed with a disability funding to support participation in everyday life activities. The NDIS also provides funding for early childhood intervention.
To determine if your child is eligible for support through this scheme visit www.ndis.gov.au and complete the NDIS Access Checklist. You can also contact the NDIA on 1800 800 110.
