The NDIS is being gradually rolled out across Victoria between 2016 and 2019. 

We are proud to be registered providers under the NDIS.

We are assisting families transitioning across to the NDIS  as it becomes available in their area.

Splash Physiotherapy is a registered NDIS provider

Splash Physiotherapy has been providing services under the NDIS since 2016

Our Provider Registration Number is 76397561

We are registered to provide the following supports under 'Capacity building : improved daily living skills'

  • NDIS: Early childhood supports for early childhood

  • NDIS: Specialised assessment of skills, abilities and needs

  • NDIS: Therapeutic supports

  • NDIS: Assistive technology specialist assessment, set up and training

NDIS price guide

We charge the rates set by the NDIS price guide for Victoria

The Victorian most current price guide can be downloaded here.

These rates apply to both in person and non - contact work eg. writing a report, attending a meeting, and travel for visits. All visits are minimum 1 hour, though we do shorter sessions at our pools.

The price guide also specifies policies regarding services such as travel and non - contact work. 

The NDIS does not cover additional costs eg entry to a local swimming pool for wheelchair access, which the participant needs to cover. 

If you have a companion card, the person directly responsible for keeping you safe in the pool can attend free of charge. If you do not have a companion card, most pools will charge for your staff as well. Again that cost is covered by the participant.

Rollout dates

Roll out has now commenced in all ares of Melbourne

** Please note that the roll out dates mark the beginning of work in your area. In our experience, many families do not receive access to NDIS funding until many months after the roll out commences.**

This link shows the council areas and the relevant NDIS contacts for planners in your area

At this link you can enter your post code to find your local NDIS office (but there is no email address contact)

You will need to ask your ECEI partner / LAC what your "local NDIA office" email contact is eg. vicwest@ndis.gov.au

They will also tell you your email address for submitting Assitive Technology applicaitons eg at.vic.west@ndis.gov.au

 

Short 6 month lans for early chidhood intervention 

Please see the NDIS info regarding these new plans which commenced 12/8/19

They are available for children who have been waiting to access the NDIS, who have been assessed as 'eligible' more than 50 days ago, have not had their initial planning meeting, and are under 7 years of age

This gives families quick access to funding for capacity  building therapy while awaiting their NDIS planning meeting

Disability related health supports are moving to the NDIS 

Defining health related supports as being the responsibility of the health sector vs the NDIS is a longstanding issue. This has been somewhat clarified by changes to move some health related supports to the NDIS budget. 

For example, families with hearing impairment costs will see this being included in their NDIS plans.

The support categories currently covered include:

As you hopefully know, the NDIS has accepted changes recommended by the "Independent Pricing Review" (IPR)  ON 2nd March 2018.

Accepted changes, starting 1st July, mean:

I wrote about our concerns with the IPR here.

It's a good starting point for a summary of the isssues, and I up...

Building the capacity of participants is one of the key principles of the NDIS. 

It relates to our core purpose here at Splash to help babies, children and young people learn everyday functional skills to participate in life at home, school, and in the community.

It is also reflected in our core values that "we teach the way kids learn"
