What is the NDIS?


Spot Therapy Hub is a registered and approved service provider under the National Disability Insurance Scheme. Our team provides early intervention and therapeutic support in both speech pathology and occupational therapy in Sydney to self and plan-managed clients. 

At Spot Therapy Hub, we offer a wide range of service types and service delivery methods to suit you and your family’s communication profiles, needs and preferences, including on and off-site consultations.

What is the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)?

The NDIS is a program that provides support for Australians with a disability, their families and carers. It is aimed to help Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability to provide them with the reasonable and necessary support they need to live an ordinary life. 

As an insurance scheme, the NDIS aims to support people with disability early to build skills and capabilities so they can participate in the community and employment later in life. Assistance from the NDIS is not means tested and has no impact on income support such as the Disability Support Pension and Carers Allowance.

Who can claim funding from the NDIS?

  • Australian residents.
  • Children and adults aged between 9 – 65, or
  • Children aged between 0 – 9 are eligible for NDIS ‘Early Childhood Early Intervention’ and requiring support from another person/equipment to complete daily tasks due to an impairment that is likely to be permanent, or requiring current support to reduce the need for support/equipment in the future.

How to access NDIS funding for Sydney speech therapy and occupational therapy

If you don’t already have NDIS funding, a report from one of our team at Spot Therapy Hub could be useful to establish whether an application would be appropriate. We can give you advice and connect you with services that can offer additional guidance and support. 

If you are already an NDIS participant, we are here to support you in any way that your funding is managed, whether it’s by a plan manager or self-managed funding.
