ConfusedThe National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the main provider of financial assistance and individualised support for autism spectrum disorder and other recognised developmental delays.

 

Accessing NDIS funding

 

To access NDIS funding for our services, you must have a recognised diagnosis and live in an NDIS area.

 

There are two ways to access NDIS funding, depending on your child’s age. If your child is over seven, funding is available via the NDIS pathway

If your child is aged zero to seven, you access funding through the Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) pathway.

 

Determining eligibility

NDIS eligibility is determined by your child’s diagnosis based on reduced functional capacity in communication, mobility, social interaction, learning, self-care or self-management. However, a diagnosis of autism at any level will likely meet NDIS funding criteria.

Medicare and private health insurance also cover some or all associated treatment costs for services, such as occupational therapy, speech therapy, physical therapy and psychological services. 

Our clinical directors are happy to advocate on your behalf to ensure you qualify for the intensive services and programs you and your child deserve.
