National Disability Scheme (NDIS)

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is being rolled out on the Sunshine Coast January 1st 2019. If you or your family member already have self-managed funding, E&A is able to assist you today, prior to the NDIS roll out for our region.


What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?

The NDIS provides individualised support for 0-65 year olds with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take park in everyday life.

At present, many of our children are accessing early intervention with us through government early intervention programs, Helping Children with Autism (HCWA) and Better Start for Children with Disability (Better Start). As the NDIS is rolled out in our region, children supported with HCWA or Better Start will transition to the NDIS. Information regarding transitions can be found here.
