National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is an Australian Government scheme that funds support needs for people aged between 0-65 years related to their disability.

Kids Connect Therapy is a registered NDIS provider.

If your child is under 6 years of age and you have concerns about your child’s development, please contact your Early Childhood Partner. The Inner East Melbourne Early Childhood Partner is Link Health & Community (Ph: 1300 552 509). Your Early Childhood Partner will work with you to provide information and linkages to supports, and will help you to access the NDIS if your child meets the access requirements. You can read more about how the NDIS can help your child aged 0-6 here.

If your child is 7 years or older, a Local Area Coordinator (LAC) can help you start this journey. The LAC for Inner East Melbourne is the La Trobe Community Health Service. The LAC will link you to information and support in the community and help you to access the NDIS. You can find out more about the NDIS access requirements here.

NDIS participants accessing services at Kids Connect Therapy can find lots of useful information contained in our Kids Connect Therapy Participant Handbook.

Please let us know if you have any questions, and we will do our best to answer these.
