National Disability Insurance Agency
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing individualised support for eligible people with permanent and significant disability, their families and carers.
AHA is assisting with the roll-out of the scheme by gathering information from participants to develop their first plans, making follow-up contact and collecting Long Form Outcome Framework data.
Information is collected via telephone or face-to-face interview by AHA’s specialist team of disability professionals, which includes skilled psychologists, speech pathologists and other health professionals.
The NDIA initially engaged AHA to gather information from participants in the Barwon region of Victoria during the trial phase of the NDIS. AHA was subsequently appointed to assist with the full roll-out of the scheme in NSW, Qld, Vic and SA.
Further information about the NDIS is available at www.ndis.gov.au.
The key purpose of the NDIS is to assist people with disability to fully realise their potential to participate in and contribute to society, and to have a say in their own future.
