After almost 2 years in trial sites, the NDIA replaced it's "NDIS My Access Checker" web page. It has a new page that asks the key questions for NDIS eligibility ... and shows where the trial sites are operating.
The people currently getting NDIS support are those in NDIS trial sites. Others have to wait for the full roll out (which is getting closer).
The new web page is called the NDIS Access Checklist. Feel free to take a look.
The new page still does not mention that each trial site has a phased implementation that also affects (delay) people's access to the NDIS. You may have to wait to access the NDIS because of their intake schedule and some of the processing delays.
People with Autism Spectrum Disorder (which includes diagnoses of Asperger's Disorder/syndrome or PDD-NOS) are often eligible for supports via the NDIS.
- children with ASD usually benefit from ASD-specific early intervention which the NDIS can fund;
- students and adults often need support to in their lives ... the NDIS can fund some or all of the disability services and support that people with ASD need.
If it is likely that you are eligible, you should check it out and make sure that you apply ... getting into the NDIS may not be automatic.
