National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
NDIS is a new national funding scheme being rolled out across the disability sector in Australia over the next few years. NDIS offers an information and referral service to any Australian with any level of disability, including access to specialist disability support services.
If your child is eligible for NDIS, you will receive funding on an annual basis to buy the services and aids your child needs to achieve your goals and optimal independence. You can decide whether to manage the funds yourself (“self-managed”) or you can ask the NDIS to manage these funds for you. NDIS has partially rolled out in Melbourne.
At Sound It Out Speech Pathology we are registered to provide services for children and adolescents under the National Disability Insurance Scheme. We accept clients who are NDIA managed, third party managed and self-managed. If your child has access to NDIS funding please contact us to discuss this further.
