Accessing NDIS for children 7+ years old
If your child is 7 years or over, you’ll need to contact the NDIS on 1800 800 110 to discuss eligibility and obtain an application form, referred to as an ‘Access Request Form’.
There are specific eligibility criteria that need to be met in order to gain access, which includes age, residency, and disability. The NDIS has an online checklist that can help you determine if you’re eligible or not.
Once your ‘Access Request Form’ is approved, a meeting will be scheduled with an NDIS planner or NDIS Local Area Coordinator (LAC) to create an individualised plan based on your needs. After which, you’ll be able to choose your preferred provider to receive supports.
Growing Early Minds is a registered NDIS provider.
