At Plan Manage Assist we get asked a lot about what are the most common therapies funded by the NDIS?

  • Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy can assist people with Autism to do everyday tasks by finding ways to work within their needs and make the most of their abilities and interests. This may include modifying daily tasks or recommending the right technology for your needs. As with any support, the NDIS will fund it if it can be considered reasonable and necessary.

  • Dancing

The NDIS can provide funding to help you join a dance class; either by funding the lesson itself or by assisting you to get to and from class. As with any support, the NDIS will fund it if it can be considered reasonable and necessary.

  • Music therapy

Music therapy is a powerful therapeutic tool that can assist people living with Autism in a number of ways including improving memory and helping with communication. As with any support, the NDIS will fund it if it can be considered reasonable and necessary.

  • Sport

Playing sport has many benefits and can improve your health benefits as many studies have shown. Because of these benefits, the NDIS can provide funding to help you get involved in sports, by either funding sporting activities or funding (part of) your sporting equipment. As with any support, the NDIS will fund it if it can be considered reasonable and necessary.
