The NDIS will change many things, so it’s a good idea to check when it will become available in your area.
The two current funding modules are:

NDIS – currently limited availability in trial sites. The NDIS is being rolled out across Australia from 1 July 2016.
Additional benefits are available under Medicare, Centrelink and other government rebates.
