Services provided through the NDIS are free to the participant. The NDIS is an up-capped service, so unlike other government-funded schemes like Medicare, people who claim support under this service will not be charged for any support provided under the scheme. The NDIS was created to help ease the burden on participants who are living with a permanent disability, as well as their families and friends who support them through their daily lives.

Therapeutic and behavioural support are crucial when it comes to support with participants that have a disability because there are a lot of issues that may arise if people are not given adequate physical health and mental health support. Being able to find a range of service providers that can help each individual work through their issues is very important and it can help to improve the quality of life for those who are living with a permanent disability immensely. By providing each participant with the adequate support that meets their needs and giving them access to professionals that they may have not otherwise been exposed to, the NDIS helps thousands of people across Victoria, NSW and every other state across Australia get the care that they need to get through each day as best as they can.

Case Studies

Barbara’s son Jackson is 18 years old and has a diagnosis of ADHD and Autism. Jackson has recently been provided funding from the NDIS for psychological support, for both therapy and behavioural support. Barbara has contacted New Vision Psychology to enquire about our services, and how to book an appointment with one of our psychologists.

 

New Vision Psychology is a registered provider of NDIS services, and so scheduling support is very easy and straight forward. All that is needed to book an appointment is Jackson’s full name, date of birth and NDIS number. We do not need a referral from a doctor.

 

For the first session, we welcome both Barbara and Jackson to attend (depending on their preference). The psychologist will use the session to get to know Jackson and to understand his support needs. This could be anything including:

 

  • social skills support
  • managing anxiety
  • managing behaviours (such as anger, frustration, avoidance, opposition)
  • living a more fulfilling life
  • developing interests and hobbies

Sessions will also include input from Jackson’s family and broader support network including his teachers, carers, and other health professionals (where applicable).

The psychologist will also be able to make recommendations to the NDIS for future funding needs for psychological support, as well as other supports that may be beneficial for recovery and progress.
