The NDIS supports a better life for hundreds of thousands of Australians with a significant and permanent disability and their families and carers. The NDIS will mean peace of mind for every Australian - for anyone who has, or might acquire, a disability.

How and When to Apply for Funding

For children aged between 0 and 6 years old, with concerns in development, you can reach out to an early childhood partner through the NDIS website and this partner can tailor support to you and your child as part of the NDIS' Early Childhood Intervention (ECEI) program.

You can expect to receive the following, should you child become an NDIS participant:

 

  1. Contact the NDIA and get information about the NDIA in your area. You can call the NDIA on 1800 800 110.
  2. Meet an NDIS early childhood partner who will discuss your child's needs.
  3. Work out the level of support your child needs. This might include emotional, community and strategic support.
  4. Make up an individual NDIS plan for submission.
  5. Explore early intervention support and select your providers.
  6. Put your child's plan into action.
  1. Contact the NDIA on 1800 800 110 for information about the NDIS in your area.
  2. Meet an NDIA/NDIS coordinator who will discuss the needs of your child and your family.
  3. Make up an individual NDIS plan for submission, including the support your child needs to reach their goals. Your coordinator will submit this to the NDIA for approval.
  4. Choose service providers for your child's NDIS plan.
  5. Put your child's plan into action.

NDIS funding can be used to access the support your child needs, regardless of your situation or diagnosis.

This can include things like speech therapy, occupational therapy and movement therapy. It might also include technology or devices that help you child to move through life easier. NDIS can also include modifications to your home where needed.

This support can include things like:

  • Skill building
  • Vacation care
  • Therapy support and behaviour support
  • Mobility equipment
  • Aids and access equipment
  • Home and transport modifications
  • Disability-specific parent and carer training
  • Support and ongoing care

 

They generally won't fund support that:

  • Isn’t related to your child’s disability
  • Is part of day to day living and that isn’t related to your child’s disability and support needs
  • Duplicates other support provided by mainstream avenues like health or education providers
  • Information and emotional support for your child and your family.
  • Access to health services, playgroups and support groups,
  • Early intervention support like speech therapy and occupational therapy.
