NDIS Service Provision at ANSS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) was initiated by the Australian Government for Australians living with disability, including people with intellectual, physical, sensory and psycho-social disabilities. It creates a managed market for disability services in Australia.

Families can make decisions to access NDIS or other non-departmental service provision at school. This may include occasional observations/consultations or regular service provision, with the aim to improve their child's educational outcomes.

ANSS hosts service providers from a number of organisations and a range of specialised services including (but not limited to) speech pathologists, occupational therapists and physiotherapists. Service providers negotiate to work within the class and/or school setting to meet the needs of their therapy goals. A minimal fee is charged for the use of school facilities by service providers.

We follow Department for Education procedures to:

  • make decisions about approving or declining requests for service provision at school on a case-by-case basis;
  • ensure student safety during service provision;
  • schedule service provision appointments at times and in places that minimise disruption to teaching and learning programs.

We continue to streamline service provision at school to improve students’ educational access, participation and achievement. For further information, please refer to the documents in the 'Downloads' section of this page.

Families wishing to request that their child’s service provider(s) work at school can contact the school to obtain the relevant forms.
