NDIS & AEIOU
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new way of providing funded supports for eligible individuals with permanent and significant disability, along with their families and carers. AEIOU Foundation is an NDIS-approved service provider, delivering intensive evidence-based early intervention for children with autism in Queensland and South Australia.
AEIOU centres in Adelaide, Townsville, Toowoomba and Camira are operating under the NDIS, while Bundaberg entered the scheme on 1 September 2017. By 2019, all AEIOU centres will have transitioned to this new funding model.
AEIOU has a solid plan in place to support our families as they navigate the NDIS. Along with advocating for the autism community, we regularly host free information sessions to share up-to-date, relevant information which will assist families to secure the funding they require to access our service.
AEIOU has a designated NDIS Support Coordinator to assist families in a one-on-one capacity and to work alongside NDIS planners and representatives. Katrina Ives, formerly AEIOU's parent liaison and fees coordinator for six years, is in an excellent position to support parents and caregivers within this capacity. To contact Katrina, please call 07 3320 7950 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Families who attend, or are on our waitlist, should check out the workshop calendar for centre events specifically relating to them and the NDIS.
