The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a government-funded program designed to provide support and services for individuals with permanent and significant disabilities in Australia. It operates on an individualized funding model, allowing participants to choose and manage their support to meet their specific needs and goals.
To be eligible for the NDIS, a person must be under the age of 65 and have a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to participate fully in everyday activities. The eligibility criteria consider the impact of the disability on functional capacity and support needs.
The NDIS provides a wide range of support and services to enhance the independence, well-being, and social inclusion of participants. These may include assistance with personal care, mobility aids, therapy services, supported accommodation, employment support, and more.
To apply for the NDIS, you need to complete an Access Request Form and provide evidence of your disability and its impact on your life. This information will be assessed by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to determine your eligibility for the scheme.
Yes, the NDIS is built on the principle of choice and control. As an NDIS participant, you have the freedom to choose the disability support providers and services that best suit your needs and preferences. This allows you to build a support network that aligns with your goals and aspirations.
"Paula's aquatics program was simply fantastic for my two boys with ASD! They had a blast in the pool with her and gained so much confidence while learning new skills.
It was wonderful to see them working towards their NDIS goals too. Thank you, Paula, for this amazing experience!"
Amazing support right from the start, any questions I needing answering or if I’m unsure regarding anything to do with our son it’s not problem, and he absolutely loves spending time with coralville care the excitement he has knowing his going out fishing or just spending time watching Horror movies, playing with “bob” the dog he is just in his happy place. Definitely can’t speak highly enough of them and what they are achieving, support all the way! THANKYOU for changing our son life who wouldn’t get in a boat as he would have meltdowns now he can’t wait to get in boat and get his boating license! 💙💚💛❤️💜
