The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
The National Disability Insurance Scheme
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support for people with permanent and significant disability. They may pay for supports relating to healthcare, social life or employment. To participate, you need to be under 65 and meet residency requirements. You also need to meet the disability or early intervention requirements. Click here to read the requirements.
The NDIS for children
The NDIS can also help pay for services for young children who need help with their health and development. If your child gets this help while they are under six years old, it could mean they need less help later. The NDIS may pay for some children’s supports if they are under six years old and:
- they find it very hard to do everyday things like using the toilet, talking, learning or walking
- they need help from a speech pathologist, a physiotherapist, a dietitian or an occupational therapist.
