Accessing the NDIS

Accessing the NDIS 

To get started, you will complete an Access Request Form with sufficient information regarding your disability and your ongoing needs. This is submitted to the NDIA planner and a review panel who assess your eligibility against certain criteria and decide on your eligibility.

This process can be a lot more complex than it sounds, and whilst you could manage the process yourself or with your doctor, we highly recommend you engage a good Occupational Therapist to help you to provide sufficient justifications for the various supports you need.  You don’t have to do this, and the NDIA do not specifically require it, but in our experience, it significantly increases your chance of success if someone with experience with various disabilities and with the NDIS system is working with you.

A good occupational therapist will provide you with evidence-based written reports outlining your capability to perform tasks and speak to what you need in place to support them to complete these tasks and ultimately achieve your goals.
