NDIS at TSH
What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides access to funding for people with disabilities (or their parents/carers) so they can access “reasonable and necessary” supports based on their needs from a provider(s) they choose.
NDIS aims to provide support to children with disabilities or developmental delays and their families as early as possible to ensure they are able to reach their full potential.
