NDIS – What does it mean?

  • National: The NDIS is being introduced progressively across all states and territories.
  • Disability: The NDIS provides support to eligible people with intellectual, physical, sensory, cognitive and psychosocial disability. Early intervention supports can also be provided for eligible people with disability or children with developmental delay.
  • Insurance: The NDIS gives all Australians peace of mind if they, their child or loved one is born with or acquires a permanent and significant disability, they will get the support they need.
  • Scheme: The NDIS is not a welfare system. The NDIS is designed to help people get the support they need so their skills and independence improve over time.

NDIS key words

  • Permanent and significant disability: A permanent disability means your disability is likely to be lifelong. A significant disability has a substantial impact on your ability to complete everyday activities.
  • Supports and services: Assistance or products that help a person in their daily life and help them participate in the community and reach their goals.
  • Early intervention: Providing support to a person, either a child or an adult, as early as possible to reduce the impacts of disability or developmental delay and to build their skills and independence.  (www.ndis.gov.au)

Inclusion Package – Children are at least 3 years of age before entering this program. Most children attend for two full days a week.  Within this setting, a small specific group is run for up to 4 hours of the day, to allow specific intensive strategies to be used within a small structured environment. Therapists are part of the team which have ongoing input into the group program and individual children’s goals. The children are included in the larger group with peers for the rest of the day, to allow them to build their social development and learn to transfer those skills learnt in the structured smaller group.

The educational programs and experiences offered to all children are tailored to meet individual needs and interests at the appropriate developmental level.
