NDIS

Each child with disability eligible for the NDIS will access reasonable and necessary supports via an individual plan which will be developed collaboratively with the child, their family and the NDIS team. For many young children, NDIS plans will comprise one or more of the following: early intervention strategies, equipment, behaviour management and family support initiatives. Increasingly, early intervention, therapy and family support will be provided by non-government disability sector organisations.

Within the school system, educational programs for children with disability are also driven by personalised learning and support plans, of which the most common is the individual education plan (IEP).  Detailed plans are developed to include educational outcomes, curriculum learning areas, social needs and personal care requirements for each child. The classroom teacher(s) and support staff are responsible for implementing these plans.
