The National Disability Insurance Scheme
Access Therapy Services is a NDIS approved service provider. The NDIS was introduced to trial sites around Australia from July 2013 and it is now being trialed in North Queensland as of the 1st of January 2016. The NDIS is a new way of providing support for people with an impairment or condition that is likely to be permanent, or a developmental delay that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities. The NDIS provides about 460,000 Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability with reasonable, and necessary supports to live an ordinary life. The scheme has been implemented by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).
