When a child who is attending secondary school also accesses the NDIS, there will be some services that will be provided by schools, some by the NDIS, and some where the two will work together.
The Victorian Department of Education and Training has put together a Frequently Asked Questions document to help clarify some of these differences. This includes questions around:
- Program for Students with Disabilities
- Which supports will be funded by the NDIS and which will stay the responsibility of the education system
- How student transport will be funded under the NDIS.
- Personal care in schools
- School leaver and employment supports
We will continue to update the information on this site as the NDIS rolls out and more information is provided about how schools and the NDIS will work together.
