We want to make sure you understand the NDIS, how it works and all the different roles involved. Watch the videos below to learn more about certain topics. If there is a NDIS resource you would like to see in Auslan, please let us know using the contact form below.



Unpack your NDIS plan

Understand the different parts of your NDIS plan through this Auslan video. Here, we also provide examples of the kinds of supports available to Deaf and hard of hearing people under each support category. Such as:

  • Core Supports: interpreting, Auslan At Home and low cost assistive technology (i.e. smoke alarms and vibrating alarms)
  • Capacity Building Supports: Support Workers, therapy services, Plan Managers and Support Coordinators
  • Capital Supports: higher cost assistive technology (i.e. hearing aids and cochlear implants), home modifications or specialist accommodation.

Ways to manage your NDIS funding

You can choose how you want to manage the money you receive to achieve your NDIS goals.

Your early childhood partner, LAC or NDIA planner will ask you how you would like to manage your NDIS funding during your planning meeting. They will help you choose the best way to manage your funds for your needs and circumstances.

There are three ways to manage your NDIS funding:

  • Self Managed
  • Plan Managed
  • NDIA Managed (Agency Managed)
