The Department of Health and Human Services has released a fact sheet for students with disability in Victoria who are completing school in 2017 and living in an area that will transition to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). It is also for schools and support teachers who will assess young people with disability leaving school in 2017.
The fact sheet features information on the following:
• What is the NDIS?
• Which areas will transition to the NDIS in 2017?
• How will the Department of Health and Human Service, the Department of Education and the NDIA work together?
• What do I need to do to get ready for my plan?
• What about school leavers who live an area that will transition to the NDIS in 2018 or later?
