The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) aims to provide support for people with a disability to live their life and to achieve their goals relating to independence, community involvement, education, employment, health and well-being.
The NDIS has begun in many locations across Australia and has recently been rolled out (started) across Ipswich. The NDIS will roll-out in Brisbane and Logan from July 2018. You can view further information about the QLD roll-out schedule here.
Boost Therapy is a registered NDIS provider of speech pathology and occupational therapy services.. This means that if your child is deemed to be eligible to participate in the NDIS and requires speech pathology and/or occupational therapy, you will be able to access services through Boost Therapy.
We have developed a NDIS fact sheet for families to help you understand more about the available supports and the process for accessing supports.
Both HCWA and Better Start have been identified for transition to the NDIS. Once children transferring from HCWA or Better Start have a plan approved under the NDIS, their access to HCWA or Better Start funding will cease as they will then be eligible to receive funding under the NDIS. It is anticipated that if your child is eligible to participate in NDIS, then the transition should mean minimal to no disruption to their therapy services.
