What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?
Here to support you every step of the way.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing support for Australians with disability, their families and carers.
The NDIS will provide about 460,000 Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to live an ordinary life.
As an insurance scheme, the NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early to improve their outcomes later in life.
What does the NDIS Replace?
The NDIS is meant to replace other disability support systems and their funded services including:
- Helping Children with Autism
- Better Start
- Ageing Disability and Home Care
- Australian Government Hearing Services Program
To meet the NDIS Early Intervention funding rules, your child needs to:
- Have an impairment or condition that is likely to be lifelong that stops them from doing everyday things by themselves.
- Be under 6 years of age with a developmental delay that requires more help with self-care, communication, learning or motor skills than other children their age.
Early Intervention specific funding has a preference for transdisciplinary service models where you can get multiple services from the one organisation, like at Real Therapy Solutions.
Who is funded under the NDIS?
The rules of what supports and people can receive funding under the NDIS are outlined in the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act.
