The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) aims to provide support for people with a disability to live their life and achieve their goals relating to independence, community involvement, education, employment, health and well-being.
The NDIS will roll-out in Brisbane and Logan from July 2018. The Gympie and Sunshine Coast roll out will commence January 2019. You can view further information about the QLD roll-out schedule here.
Adapt provides services from 0 – 65 for NDIS eligible participants.
Adapt Health Care is a registered NDIS provider of:
- Occupational Therapy
- Speech Therapy
- Exercise Physiology
We are able to provide services at your home, respite centre, child care centre or within your chosen clinic. This means if your child, you or someone you love is deemed to be eligible to participate in the NDIS and requires the above allied health service, you will be able to access services through Adapt Health Care.
Where can I get further information from?
You can visit the NDIS website or call the NDIS on 1800 800 110.
My child currently received funding through Better Start or Helping Children with Autism (HCWA) program. What will happen when the NDIS is rolled out?
Both Better Start and HCWA have been identified for transition to the NDIS. Once children transferring from HCWA or Better Start have a funding plan approved under the NDIS, their access to HCWA or Better Start funding will cease. 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.
