Down Syndrome Queensland has registered as an NDIS Provider to provide services to any eligible person in Queensland.
There are a range of services that we offer that can be funded through an NDIS Plan. In many cases these services were previously funded or subsidised via funding that Down Syndrome Queensland received from State Government.
Families need to be proactive in organising their NDIS funding in order to access these services.
If you are entering into an NDIS plan in the near future or having a plan review, it is important that you consider the outcomes you want to achieve and how our services can help you achieve these. The information below should provide what you need in order to have this discussion with your planner.
Please contact us for an NDIS quote or for more information.
