As a parent of a child with autism or developmental disabilities, it can often feel like support services drop off after early intervention programs finish. However, the good news is that there are many programs available to help your child as they enter young adulthood; many of which are supported by the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). Here are the services for adults with disability that you should know about.
- Support Coordination
There are multiple other services for adults with disability that are covered by the NDIS. However, it can be tricky to understand what kind of help and support is available to your child, as well as actually finding them. That’s where Nextt can help.
Through our support coordination services, our team of support coordinators help you and your child set their individual NDIS plan, as well as access the different services that are relevant for them.
The types of assistance your child may be able to access include:
- Access to information and referrals
- Support to access community services and activities
- Individualised support plans
- Assistive technology
2. Nextt Steps Program
Nextt Steps is a skill building program that assists young adults (ages 6 to 25) in developing functional and meaningful skills to help them lead happy, independent lives when possible.
This home-based therapy program works with your child in their home, work and school environments where appropriate, allowing your child to develop the essential social and life skills that they need in their everyday lives.
This capacity and skill building program is carried out by our trained therapists who work with you and your child under the supervision of Allied Health professionals.
3. Disability Housing
