What's your NDIS plan?

The support services you’ll receive will depend on what’s in your NDIS plan. This is a document that outlines:

  • Information about you and your disability
  • What support you receive from friends and family (parents, etc.)
  • What support you receive from government or community services
  • Your goals (personal, social, employment, etc.)
  • The funding you have been allocated for each support category

 

We can assist with support coordination to ensure that you can take full advantage of the broad range of services available to you and make the most of your funding. To find out more, get in touch with our support coordinators now.

What intellectual disabilities are covered by the NDIS?

The NDIS provides funding that enables people living with disability to access funding for the supports they need to live an independent life.

To qualify, a person’s disability must be permanent (i.e., lifelong) and significant (i.e, impact a person’s ability to complete everyday tasks). This can include physical disability, intellectual disability, mental health issues (psychosocial disability), multiple disabilities and developmental delays.

You may qualify for the NDIS if you’ve been:

  • Diagnosed with a moderate, severe, or profound intellectual disability using DSM criteria (i.e., an IQ of 55 or less, severe deficits in adaptive functioning)
  • Diagnosed with autism at a severity of Level 2 or 3
  • Diagnosed with certain genetic conditions that result in severe intellectual disability

Need more information about the NDIS? As a registered service provider, we’ll be more than happy to help. Get in touch with our team now.
