The NDIA has partnered with the Raising Children Network website to create online articles and a videos series to help parents get ready for the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
NDIA General Manager Media, Communications and Engagement, Maryanne Diamond, said the NDIS would provide Australian children who had developmental delay or disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they needed to live an ordinary life.
“These new online resources will help parents understand how the NDIS can support their child, be it through early intervention, personal care and support, access to the community, therapy services or essential equipment,” Ms Diamond said.
“The NDIS is a big change, but there’s things parents can do in the lead up to get NDIS Ready, such as find out when the NDIS will be available in their area and think about their child’s goals.”
The new NDIS resources are freely available at on the Raising Children Network website.
