At Educare, we get lots of questions about the NDIS. How does it work? What does it stand for? And, most importantly, can it help provide support for your specific situation?

What is the NDIS?

The NDIS is the National Disability Insurance Scheme. Legislated in 2013, the NDIS is a way to help people under 65 with a permanent and significant disability they get care and support they need. It's a publicly funded programme, and it is not means tested.

The NDIS also helps families and carers by providing information about services to support people with disability. With an NDIS psychologist, NDIS speech or occupational therapy, or any of the other services provided by the scheme, more people can now enjoy a higher standard of living as their lives and needs change.

If you're interested in getting more information about the NDIS, you can find it on the official government website.
