What is the NDIS?
NDIS stands for the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
The NDIS was set up to provide those under the age of 65 who have a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to enjoy an ordinary life.
The NDIS takes a lifetime approach to supporting eligible participants to build skills and capability so they can participate in the community and employment.
Accessing NDIS supports
Once deemed eligible, families meet with an NDIS planner to develop an individually tailored package of supports covering core supports (supports required for daily living), capacity building supports (this includes therapy supports) and capital supports (physical supports such as wheelchairs, home modifications etc). At Guiding Pathways, we can help you by identifying the type and frequency of therapy your child is likely to need so you can take this information into your meeting with the NDIS planner.
