NDIS for children
Access Health and Community has been a registered NDIS Service Provider since October 2016.
How we can help
We can help with Early Childhood Early intervention (ECEI) services for children under 7 years old with an NDIS Plan. Our staff can work with you as parents/carers to focus on your child’s needs.
We also provide NDIS services for children up to 12 years for most of our therapies.
If your child needs NDIS services, we will offer you a therapist who will be your primary contact/key worker. They will work with you to meet your child’s NDIS goals and support your family to access our Child and Family team. We will form a team around your child to improve their developmental outcomes.
