The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), provides an opportunity for people living with a disability/chronic condition and their families to receive funding and support to reach goals that will enable greater participation, build capacity and enable growing independence. It provides a wonderful opportunity for participants and their loved ones to seek support and direction but also have choice and control around what is a priority need for them and which provider to engage in helping them.
Advanced Rehab Centre is an NDIS Registered Provider and a multidisciplinary therapy practice. This means that you may want to receive multiple services from us, which can save time and money.
A common misconception is that a chronic diagnosis alone simply gets you accepted as a participant onto the scheme. The NDIS focus on everyday function rather than a diagnosis alone. So what does this mean?
Acceptance on to the scheme and subsequent funding decisions are based on how that condition affects your daily living and participation at home and in your everyday life. When applying, often this vital information is missed and unfortunately some applicants find themselves unsuccessful in their application onto the scheme.
A report by a community therapist can assist applicants to help generate a report that helps identify the link between your disability/condition and how it affects your day to day life. They can also assist you with goal setting that will help make a difference in your life. The report will also greatly influence the decision making by the NDIS around allocation of funds in appropriate categories.
The NDIS officers are often looking to community based therapists like Occupational therapists and Physiotherapists to provide the accurate information required in order to be considered for acceptance on the scheme.
If you or your loved one are looking to apply for NDIS funding or have been knocked back due to insufficient documentation, our Occupational Therapists can fully support and advocate your support needs with a very comprehensive assessment and report.
