Information Package for Schools
National Disability Insurance Scheme
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support for Australians with disabilities, their families and carers. As an insurance scheme, the NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing early in people with disabilities to improve their outcomes later in life.
The NDIS supports people with disabilities to build skills and capability so they can participate in the community and gain employment. It assists them to access services and support, which may include funding related to the disability, or issues deemed reasonable or necessary for a person to live an everyday life and achieve personal goals.
The following documents are designed to help Northern Territory Government schools make decisions on how they engage with families and NDIS registered providers.
