NDIS Psychologist Fees
Early Childhood Early Interventions (ECEI)
Therapeutic supports are provided under “Improved Daily Living”, as part of the “Capacity Building” support category. If this is part of your NDIS plan, you can utilise this funding for therapy, assessments and training to build your daily living skills, independence and community participation.
Behaviour support is provided under “Improved Relationships”, as part of the “Capacity Building” support category. If this is part of your NDIS plan, you can utilise this funding for assessments, behaviour support plans and behavioural interventions.
This is for those with behavioural needs (such as risky behaviours) to have a plan in place for themselves. It helps their support team understand how best to manage and reduce behaviours of concern. Behaviour plans and interventions help you improve communication, develop positive behaviours, and have better interactions with others.
Early childhood intervention
Early childhood intervention is for children younger than 7 with a disability, developmental delay, or development concerns. The NDIS gives children and their families quick access to support tailored to their needs and circumstances.
Early intervention is about taking action as soon as possible to work on a child’s developmental needs. The aim is to give children opportunities to grow and learn, and develop the skills they need to have the best possible start in life.
New Vision Psychology is a registered provider of NDIS services delivering all these psychological supports throughout Sydney.
Frequently Asked Questions
How can I use my NDIS funding to access psychological services?
The NDIS supports people with disability to increase their independence and fully participate in community and working life.
The NDIS funds mental health supports that focus on your functional ability and capacity building. If you have a disability arising from a mental health condition, the NDIS funds non-clinical treatments from a psychologist or mental health professional. Examples include developing social and communication skills to help you manage relationships and connect with your community, and behaviour intervention to help you be more confident and independent with day-to-day activities.
NDIS mental health support comes under three main types of funding categories:
- Therapeutic support (Improved daily living)
- Behaviour support (Improved relationships)
- Early childhood interventions
Check your NDIS plan to see whether your funding includes these areas.
If your NDIS plan states that you have access to Allied Health or Psychological Services, you may access support from us. Give us a call on 1300 001 778 if you have any questions about your funding.
