Supporting parents’ transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)

Halinda School proactively engaged with community agencies and local stakeholders implementing the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) to develop accessible information networks that would service the ongoing needs of parents and their children.

The school worked with community agencies to meet parent/carer registration requirements in the NDIS. The school produced an NDIS newsletter for parents and carers and drew on interagency services, NDIS personnel, parents/carers and teachers to jointly facilitate workshops every term. Key parent/carer leaders worked with the school in developing and implementing information expos and parent educational initiatives. The expos enhanced parent/carer advocacy, provided the opportunity for access to appropriate services and supported parents/carers with skills in negotiation and planning requirements.
