The Department of Education is committed to supporting children with disability and their families. That is why they are introducing National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Navigators in all Victorian government specialist schools. The NDIS Navigator supports parents and carers to understand, navigate and access the supports available to them under the NDIS. The NDIS Navigator will provide support and advice for parents and carers to build their capacity to understand, and advocate for appropriate NDIS funded support services for their children.

NDIS Navigators can help you to:

·       navigate and understand the NDIS

·       apply for and access NDIS funded supports for your child

·       understand activities like a plan reassessment.

·       find out how to raise issues about your child’s plan or with a provider.
