Frequently asked questions
What is cerebral palsy?
Cerebral palsy is a physical disability mostly affecting muscles and posture. Cerebral palsy is caused by an injury to a baby's brain before, during or shortly after birth. For many people, the exact cause is unknown. It's one of the most common childhood physical disabilities.
Is cerebral palsy covered by the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is designed to support people whose disability significantly impacts their life (or is likely to significantly impact their life in the future, without early intervention). People living with cerebral palsy are often eligible for the NDIS.
To find out if you are eligible for the NDIS, you can use the NDIS’ Am I Eligible tool.
What can the NDIS fund for cerebral palsy?
Cerebral palsy symptoms can vary greatly for different people. As the NDIS provides individualised funding packages, there is no one answer for what can be funded for people with cerebral palsy in general.
Based on your individual situation, things you could get funding for related to cerebral palsy could include: sessions with various allied health therapists, help from a support worker, assistive technology, home modifications or low-cost consumables.
When it comes to NDIS funding, make sure you discuss your needs and goals with your local area coordinator (LAC) or NDIS planner when putting together your first or next NDIS plan.
Can anyone with NDIS funding access support services?
Your NDIS plan is created to help fund supports relevant to your disability and unique situation. It’s important to check that the service you want relates to your NDIS plan and is considered ‘reasonable and necessary’.
If you can answer YES to each of these 6 questions, your request is likely to be approved by the NDIS.
- Is this a product or service you need due to a disability?
- Does it help you meet your goals?
- Is it reasonable value for money?
- Is there evidence that this product or service is effective?
- Is this something that you wouldn’t be able to receive from your family or the community?
- Is the NDIS the most suitable funding scheme to pay for this support?
