About Kids is a registered NDIS Provider. This means we have been audited and found to meet all of the requirements and expectations set by the NDIS. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) started in 2016 and has made a wonderful impact and contribution for families seeking support for their children with developmental delays or a specific disability.
As a registered provider, we are passionate about supporting, empowering and assisting you and your children to achieve goals which will have life long benefits including at home, at school, with friends, in the community, and at work.
The NDIS is Australia’s first national scheme for people with disability. It replaces previous support schemes including Better Start and Helping Children with Autism Packages and moves away from providing block funding to agencies and community organisations. This means that each eligible person with a disability applies for and receives funding directly. The funding is allocated for specific purposes such as therapy and resources so that participants are able to progress towards meeting their own developmental and living goals. Young children, under 6 years are eligible for support if they have developmental delays even if they do not have an identified disability. This provides early intervention and aims to reduce the need for therapy support later. The great thing about NDIS funding is that it provides participants with more choice and control over what, how, when and where their supports are provided. It also provides certainty that they will receive the support they need for as long as they need it over their lifetime.
