In July 2013, the National Disability Insurance Scheme was launched to provide people with disability and their families with support based on their individual needs, goals and aspirations.
The support is enabled through individualised budgets set up for each eligible person with disability to access their supports. This is determined through an assessment of their individual needs – including for now and for their future development and wellbeing.
The NDIS has now released information in a series of Auslan videos. To watch them, see the NDIS website. DCA has also produced a video about the NDIS, which can be viewed below.
