Information for NDIS Clients.

Laughter is not the best medicine…… friends are the best medicine”

Clown Doctor, Patch Adams

Evolving Roles works with many kids who are funded through the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), including those on the Autism Spectrum and with sensory or cognitive issues impacting their relationship skills. 

Participating in our teen therapeutic social groups and individual counselling for your child is funded under Capacity Building – Improved Daily Living by the NDIS.

NDIS clients are referred to us by Parents, NDIS Local Area Co-ordinators & Support Co-ordinators, by recommendation from their doctors and other health professionals or by finding us directly through word of mouth.

NDIS Self Managed Plans

If you or your child is on an NDIS Self-Managed Plan, you can choose the services required to meet yours or their needs according to the goals on the NDIS plan.

If you think our approach might be of benefit to you or your child, the first step is to call Jane or book a one hour meeting with her. Either way you can think together with her about the best way forward. This will help confirm that the treatment, whether that is group or individual sessions, can support the short, medium, and long-terms goals of the NDIS plan. Before the first appointment, we can also review any previous reports and documentation that you can provide to inform our work together (fees apply).

The typical care package for the Teen Therapeutic Social Groups includes:

  • 10 x group sessions per school term (up to the end of the plan) with peers
  • I review session per school term (usually with teen and a parent)
  • Report with observations, recommendations and quote for on-going work and associated funding. The report is completed two months before the end of the NDIS plan.

You pay for our services directly and claim the costs back from the NDIS. We also recommend putting in place an NDIS service agreement to ensure everyone is clear about our agreed treatment.

NDIS Plan Managed

If you or your child have a Self Managed NDIS Plan, you can choose the services that meet you or your child’s needs that match with the NDIS Plan goals. 

If you think our approach might be of benefit to you or your child, the first step is for you to organise a one hour meeting with Jane to think together about the best way forward for your child. This will help identify how any agreed treatment could support the short, medium, and long-terms goals of the NDIS plan. We’d also be happy to discuss the proposed Treatment Plan with your NDIS Local Area Coordinator or your NDIS Support Coordinator.

Before the first appointment, we will also review any previous reports and documentation that you can provide to inform our work together.

The typical care package for group participants includes:

  • 10 x group sessions per school term (up to the end of the plan) with peers
  • I review session per term (usually with teen and a parent)
  • Report with observations, recommendations and quote for on-going work and associated funding. The report is completed two months before the end of the NDIS plan.

We also put together an NDIS Service Agreement. This includes details of your NDIS plan manager and invoicing arrangements. We can complete that together if you decide to proceed with Evolving Roles providing services to you.
