4 – Do you usually need support from a person or equipment to do everyday things for yourself because of an impairment or condition that is likely to be permanent?
To meet the NDIS disability rules you need to have an impairment or condition that is likely to be permanent (lifelong) and that stops you from doing everyday things by yourself.
The following questions may help you decide if your answer is ‘yes’.
Do you usually need support from a person or assistive equipment so you can:
- understand and be understood by other people?
- make and keep friends and cope with feelings and emotions?
- understand, remember and learn new things?
- get out of bed and move around the home and outside the home?
- take a bath or shower, dress and eat?
- do daily jobs, handle money and make decisions?
5 – Do you need some supports now to reduce your support needs in the future?
To meet the NDIS early intervention rules, you need to
- have an impairment or condition that is likely to be permanent (lifelong); or
- be a child under 6 years of age with a developmental delay and the delay means you usually need more help with your self-care, communication, learning or motor skills than another child of the same age.
Early intervention supports provided by the NDIS are those not provided by any other services such as health and education.
The following questions may help you decide if your answer is ‘yes’.
Would early intervention supports:
- reduce the impact of your impairment or condition or developmental delay?
- stop the impact of your impairment or condition from getting worse?
- strengthen your informal supports, such as helping a carer to keep supporting you?
