We know there is a lot of confusion about NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) which rolls out from 1st January 2017 in Toowoomba and surrounding areas west to the border (including Dalby, Warwick, Roma etc). We just met with NDIS directly in person today and here’s the latest you need to know.
1. If you aren’t sure if your child is eligible just ring and ask!
2. If you have a child aged 0-6 years who is having difficulties with their development then call NDIS on 1800 800 110 to register and they will send you out an Access Request Form. Don’t worry if they don’t have a diagnosis yet, support for these children is available regardless of diagnosis.
3. If you have a child 6+ years old with a disability that is having a significant impact on daily life (regardless of underlying diagnosis) and you haven’t yet been contacted by NDIS then call NDIS on 1800 800 110 to see if your child is eligible and to register and they will send you out an Access Request Form.
