Key aspects of the NDIS include:
Person-Centered Approach: The NDIS focuses on individual needs, goals, and aspirations. Participants have choice and control over the supports and services they receive.
Funding and Support: The scheme provides funding to eligible individuals to access necessary supports, including disability-related aids, equipment, therapies, and personal care assistance.
Support Coordination: Participants may receive assistance from support coordinators who help them navigate the NDIS, develop support plans, and connect with service providers.
Flexible Supports: The NDIS offers a range of supports tailored to individual needs, including daily living assistance, mobility aids, home modifications, employment support, community participation, and more.
Early Intervention: The NDIS also includes provisions for early intervention services, aiming to support children and young people with disabilities to reach their full potential and minimize future support needs.
Access and Eligibility: To be eligible for the NDIS, individuals must meet certain criteria related to their disability, age, residency, and the impact on their daily functioning. Each participant's eligibility is assessed individually.
Individualized Support Plans: Participants work with the NDIS to create individualized support plans that outline their goals, needs, and desired outcomes. These plans guide the provision of supports and services.
Choice of Service Providers: Participants have the freedom to choose their service providers, promoting competition and diverse options for service delivery.
The NDIS aims to provide long-term support to individuals with disabilities and promote their social and economic participation. It is an essential framework that seeks to empower people with disabilities to exercise choice, control, and independence in their lives.
