The NDIS Video transcripts are copied onto pages in plain text so they are able to be translated in your web browser.

NDIS Video 5: What is NOT covered by the NDIS?
The NDIS does not cover:
• Support or services already funded by the government. For example, Australian Hearing services, medical health services or services provided by the Education Department.
• Anything that is not directly related to yours or your child’s disability or day to day living costs such as purchasing food or telephone bills which are not related to support needs.
If you would like more information about what is covered, we recommend looking at the NDIS website or contacting Deaf Children Australia’s helpline:
