Autism Queensland and the NDIS
What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) will provide support for eligible Australians up to age 65 who are living with a permanent and significant disability.
Individuals who are eligible for NDIS and who live in an LGA (local government area) where the NDIS is currently available will receive supports which may include funding following an assessment of their needs in a process managed by the National Disability Insurance Agency.
