While you’re being supported by your early childhood partner with early connections, you may decide that you want to apply to the NDIS on behalf of your child. To find out more about being eligible for the NDIS go to the Access to the NDIS guideline.
If you decide to apply to the NDIS on your child’s behalf, your early childhood partner can support you to put together information and evidence to help work out if your child is eligible. This includes evidence of how your child’s functional capacity is affected.
If your child transitions from early connections to become an NDIS participant, then we’ll use information gathered about goals, assessments, and connections with community and mainstream supports to help create your child’s NDIS plan.
You can read more about how we make decisions about your NDIS plan in Our Guidelines – Creating your plan, Your plan and Reasonable and necessary supports.
