We provide NDIS funded services for Participants aged between 7 to 64. A child is eligible if  their impairments are likely to be, permanent or impaired due to a medical disorder and / or a delay in development. To get support for your child aged 0-6 years under the NDIS, you can get in touch with the NDIS to facilitate early intervention support for your child. It involves meeting and working with an NDIS early childhood partner, who can recommend ways to support your child’s development.
