Steps Services and Your NDIS Plan
Our Steps staff are registered to provide therapeutic supports to allow clients to receive Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology and Exercise Physiology through the NDIS.
Your NDIS plan will have different categories and budgets that you can use to access a variety of support and services. Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Pathology and Exercise Physiology are all funded in your Improved Daily Living budget.
You can also receive Exercise Physiology if you have funding in your Improved Health and Wellbeing budget.
Accessing your NDIS funds at Steps
When you book your initial consultation, our intake team will request some details from you about your NDIS plan, including your plan dates, NDIS number, and funding type (self-managed, plan-managed, or portal managed). If you are not sure of these details, please contact your NDIS coordinator to assist you.
At your initial session your therapist will discuss your relevant NDIS goals and understand what you want to achieve from your therapy. Your Steps therapist can then work with you to address these goals and create opportunities for you to develop new skills.
Your therapist can also assist with completing funding applications, liaising with your support coordinator or local area coordinator and completing reports to assist you with further funding applications.
