The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides funding to people with a disability, or their family. Funds can be used for services and items that will support the person with a disability to reach their life goals.
Families must apply for NDIS funding and eligibility is determined by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA).
The Cora Barclay Centre is a registered NDIS provider and we aim to provide as much support as possible for families to navigate the NDIS process.
The Cora Barclay Centre receives the majority of its funding through NDIS, but the scheme does not fully cover the costs to provide our services. Because of this we also undertake fundraising activities throughout the year to allow us to continue to provide the best possible outcomes for children with hearing loss.
Do I need to wait until I have been approved to register with the Cora Barclay Centre?
No. The earlier you can begin listening and spoken language therapy with your child, the better their long term outcomes will be. You can be receiving therapy and attending our programs while your NDIS application is pending. We even have our own in-house NDIS specialist will help you navigate the NDIS process.
What if I do not receive NDIS funding?
Although it does not happen often, children with a hearing loss can be deemed ineligible for the scheme. The Cora Barclay Centre do not levy fees for core service on families that NDIS have deemed ineligeble. If we believe we can make a positive impact on a child's life we want them to be part of our community.
