How the NDIS will change Child Disability Support Brisbane

At InFocus, we provide support for children with complex disabilities in Brisbane. As a registered NDIS service provider in Brisbane and the greater Brisbane region, we are already working with families on their NDIS pre-planning and their transition over to the NDIS.

The roll-out of the NDIS will overhaul the way that support for children with complex disabilities in Brisbane is given by child disability service providers.

There are four major changes which we’ve summarised below:

  1. The NDIA becomes your “go to” for assessing funding for your child and to determine eligibility. This previously has been the state government or service providers.
  2. The process to apply for and receive your funding is different.
  3. The types of supports that are funded and how they are funded will change.
  4. How your funds are managed will change with options including self-management, choosing a registered plan management provider or requesting the NDIA manage your plan on your behalf.

At InFocus because we provide support for children with complex disabilities in Brisbane and as registered NDIS providers in Ipswich and the greater Brisbane region, we’re here to support you and your family with your transition to the NDIS. 

If you have any questions regarding your NDIS pre-planning or about our services for children with disabilities in Ipswich or Brisbane, please give us a call on 07 3216 8811 (South Brisbane office) or 07 3216 6950 (North Brisbane office).
