Step one: Check out if your local area has NDIS providers
Although the NDIS is a nationwide government scheme it doesn’t necessarily mean there are the providers you need in your local area.
You can then check on NDIS website or alternatively Beacon Support as an NDIS provider in Queensland can help you understand and navigate this.
Step two: Check your age and other eligibility
Your age will decide if you can apply for NDIS or not. So if you are under 65 you are eligible. Unfortunately over 65’s cannot register for NDIS funding unless there are certain special circumstances, which are detailed on the NDIS website.
You’ll also need to be an Australian resident, have a recognised disability or qualify for early intervention requirements if necessary.
