People with disabilities can access lifelong support through the NDIS, a nationally-funded program.

The scheme aims to provide people with support that will assist them in reaching their goals and enabling them to live the kinds of lives they want.

NDIS eligibility is available for people with disabilities who have been affected by them and have not reached 65 years of age.

Who is eligible for the NDIS?

The eligibility for this benefit is determined by your age, residency status, as well as the severity and impact of your impairment.

To participate in the NDIS, your eligibility must be assessed by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).  You must meet the following requirements:

  • Be under 65 years of age
  • Be a resident of Australia
  • Are unable to do the things you do on a daily basis because of permanent impairment or condition (lifelong)

 

Can I get the NDIS if I meet certain criteria?

As the provider of the NDIS, it is up to the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) to decide who is eligible for the scheme.

Visit the NDIS website for more information about NDIS eligibility.

After an NDIS representative assists them with their first plan and that plan is approved, if they are eligible, they can begin to use the NDIS. Those who meet the eligibility requirements will be called participants once they have access to the NDIS.

You can view a graphic eligibility checklist on the NDIS website to see if you qualify.

Getting started with NDIS pre-planning and having a conversation with NDIS planners

Throughout the NDIS, you will be asked questions about your life and how things are going for you. They can then determine which kind of support is best for you after learning this.

In addition to your contribution to NDIS, you will provide them with information that will enable them to track progress, and will enhance the NDIS for all. Additionally, they will interview a family member, so that they can also become aware of how you are doing.

In your conversation they will ask about:

  • Information about yourself
  • Community and mainstream support
  • Managing your daily activities
  • The safety of you, your home, and your equipment
  • the goals you want to pursue
  • ways to manage your plan
  • Support for using your NDIS plan.

What is Physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy and rehabilitation aim to help and improve a person’s mobility and functionality.

There are numerous ways that physical therapy can assist in disability management, such as pain management programs, rehabilitation exercises at home, health advice, and equipment recommendations.

Physiotherapists help people with disabilities achieve greater independence and boost their muscle and joint function.

Among the techniques and treatments they use are:

  • Assessing posture, muscle tone, mobility and strength
  • The use of special equipment.
  • Manipulating and massaging joints
  • Exercise programs
