What is the NDIS?

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way for people with disabilities to get the care and supports they need to live a better life, giving them choice and control over the supports they receive. It is the biggest change in Australian Government support since the introduction of Medicare. NDIS participants will have an individualised plan that is tailored to their goals and support needs.

NDIS Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) Approach – children 0-6 years

Families will link with Early Childhood Early Intervention partners who will either provide referrals to other supports available in the community, some short term early intervention supports to children or assist them to access the NDIS depending on their needs. If a child receives an NDIS plan, the family will then choose which early intervention provider, e.g. speech therapist, they want to provide supports to their child and how these supports are provided.

NDIS is gradually being introduced across Australia. For more information visit www.ndis.gov.au
