0118 – Early Intervention Supports for Early Childhood

0128 – Therapeutic Supports

0117 – Development of Daily Living and Life Skills

0106 – Assistance in Coordinating or Managing Life Stages, Transitions And Supports

Our Services Included:

Our team are equipped to deliver NDIS preferred functional capacity assessments such as WHODAS 2.0. as well as those outlined under our assessments page.

 

We also provide the following supports and services under the relevant NDIS areas, along with the therapeutic interventions outlined on our therapeutic interventions page.

0118 - Early Intervention Supports

    • Developmental Educator
    • Social worker
    • Early Childhood Teacher or Educator
    • Other Professional

These support items provide capacity building supports in early childhood, including key worker, to assist a child (younger than 7) with developmental delay or disability and their family or carers in home, community, and early childhood education settings, to work towards increased functional independence and social participation. It is expected that the supports are delivered in line with the NDIS Commission’s NDIS Practice Standards and Quality Indicators for Early Childhood Supports.

These support items can also be used for the assessment, planning, and delivery of Disability-Related Health Supports where these supports directly relate to a participant’s significant and permanent functional impairment and assist them to undertake activities of daily living.

These support items can be delivered to individual participants or to groups of participants subject to the rules set out in the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits.

0128 - Therapeutic Supports (7 or older)

These support items provide therapeutic services to participants (7 or older). Therapeutic supports are for participants with an established disability to facilitate functional improvement, where maximum medical improvement has been reached. For people who access the Scheme as ‘early intervention’ participants, reasonable and necessary supports are likely to be a blend of medical and disability therapies but should be predominantly disability therapeutic supports. Therapeutic must be aimed at adjustment, adaption, and building capacity for community participation. 

 

Maintenance care can be claimed against a participant’s plan, where the primary purpose is to provide ongoing support for a participant to maintain a level of functioning including long term therapy/support required to achieve small incremental gains or to prevent functional decline. In general, maintenance therapeutic that is reasonable and necessary should be delivered by carers who are or can be trained in this if required. Where a participant has a medical condition or disability that requires a particular regime to maintain functioning of a body part, or to slow the deterioration of a medical condition or body part, then these support items can be used to deliver reasonable and necessary training for non-qualified personnel to assist a participant, as part of usual daily care. These support items cannot be used for massage, delivered directly to impact a body part or body system, as these supports are more appropriately funded by the health system. 

 

These support items can also be used for the assessment, planning, and delivery of Disability-Related Health Supports where these supports directly relate to a participant’s significant and permanent functional impairment and assist them to undertake activities of daily living.

 

These support items can be delivered to individual participants or to groups of participants subject to the rules set out in the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits. In particular, these support items can only be delivered by the following types of professionals, and by therapeutic assistants operating under the delegation and supervision of one of the following types of professionals:

    • Counsellor – Our counsellors are accredited members of the Australian Counselling Association and accredited Registrant with the Psychotherapeutic and Counselling Federation of Australia.
    • Developmental Educator – Developmental Educators are recognised allied health professionals under the NDIS Provider Suitability Guide and provide services and supports for core and capacity building under the relevant NDIS Registration Groups
    • Social Worker – our social workers are members of the Australian Association of Social Workers and National Organisation of Forensic Social workers .
    • Other Professional – these professionals are those who are not one of the types of professionals listed above but who the provider considers to be an appropriate professional to deliver therapeutic supports in line with the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Commission’s requirements for the Therapeutic Supports Registration Group.

0106 – Assistance in Coordinating or Managing Life Stages, Transitions And Supports Psychosocial Recovery Coaches

These support items provide assistance for participants to build capacity and resilience through strong and respectful relationships to support young people with psychosocial disability to live a full and contributing life. This support is designed to be able to maintain engagement through periods of increased support needs due to the episodic nature of mental illness. Recovery coaches work collaboratively with participants, families, carers and other services to identify, plan, design and coordinate NDIS supports.

 

This support item can be delivered to individual participants subject to the rules set out in the NDIS Pricing Arrangements and Price Limits.
