NDIS Support

NDIS stands for National Disability Insurance Scheme. It exists to support Australians coping with a disability, their families and carers.

The NDIS is a fantastic scheme, which parents at the CDI can use to fund their child’s therapy and also use to access our parent programs. But applying to the NDIS is time-consuming and sometimes tricky.

Help is at hand, though.

At CDI we provide individualised support to help parents apply for an NDIS plan.

Once your child has started to attend therapy at the Child Development Institute, we’re able to assist you in preparing for an application to review your NDIS plan if your initial plan does not meet your needs.

Our assistance will:

  • Provide a summary of your child’s ESDM assessment detailing abilities and gaps in each development area
  • Provide you with a document detailing how the CDI delivers the ESDM therapy, highlighting our evidence-based strategies
  • Provide supporting evidence of the developments in your child’s abilities since they started receiving the ESDM therapy
  • Provide a quote for your child’s personalised program as agreed with your Key Worker based on your goals for your child
