Inclusive Directions offers a range of services and supports to assist people and families to understand, navigate and make the most out of the NDIS. We work with people with a disability and their families, using a person-centred approach, to support them to identify and achieve their goals. We are committed to working with each individual to achieve their goals, at their pace and in their own way.

Funded Support

Inclusive Directions is a registered provider of support and services under the NDIS. Each of these support clusters is detailed below.

Our services and supports include:

Inclusive Directions can provide assistance to understand the philosophy and principles underpinning the scheme, navigate the planning pathways and prepare for planning meetings. We assist you in locating and accessing services and connecting with local support groups and other families with similar experiences.

The focus here is on supporting the training and development activities of children and carers to increase their ability to live as autonomously as possible. This training can be delivered in either group or individual settings, and can include development of social skills, numeracy and literacy and plan management.

We coordinate an integrated program where multiple professionals share responsibility in evaluating, planning and implementing support for families to improve the capacity of their child with a disability. The combined knowledge, expertise and experiences of our team can assist you to develop and deliver a comprehensive and holistic Transdisciplinary Early Childhood Intervention Plan.

Assistance is given to individuals to improve their daily function, increase participation in a range of daily community activities and improve quality of life outcomes. Strategies are backed by evidence of effectiveness. Our team can work with families and children in their homes, community or educational settings to address challenging behaviours.

Acting as a lead facilitator, we assist families to access a range of therapeutic supports, including:

  • Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)
  • Speech and language pathology
  • Occupational therapy
  • Psychology

Assistance is provided to people with disabilities and their families in developing skills for accessing public transport or taxis safely. This supports people to achieve a more independent lifestyle and become more active in their communities.

Assistance is provided to adults with disabilities to access employment, including preparation for interviews and recruitment processes, and coordination of daily activities and routines. We can also assist adults to maintain employment to ensure that their economic participation in their community continues.

Support provided may include upskilling and informing educators and teachers, periodic transitions in individual and group settings, and training for parents and caregivers to prepare their children for transition.

Inclusive Directions has a long history in assisting children and young people transition between educational settings. Our team has a wealth of experience and knowledge to draw from when providing supports under this cluster.

Assistance is provided to access events within a person’s immediate community and on a larger scale. This will result in greater engagement of people with disabilities in their communities, and greater knowledge and awareness of the capacity of people with disabilities to be involved and engaged. This is a key principle underpinning NDIS.

In addition to the above support clusters, we are also registered providers for coordination and funds management.

Coordination and Funds Management

Inclusive Directions can provide services to assist families to manage their NDIS packages and the funds allocated to them for this package.

Assistance to co-ordinate or manage life stages, transitions and support

Assistance is provided to strengthen a person’s ability to arrange their own supports, to help them to live independently and to increase their capacity for participation in their community. This may involve coordination or management of the person’s Individual Support Plan, and development of their skills to manage the challenges associated with their disability, to be active in community life or manage complex health needs. The types of activities under this support cluster may include:

  • life planning,
  • resolution of crisis situations,
  • training for parents and caregivers,
  • training around budgets and finances,
  • coordinating complex supports, such as finding the right people/organisations to deliver service to the person,
  • developing personal capacity and resilience through networks and community connections, and
  • advocacy with NDIA planners, local area coordinators and service.

Management of funding for support in a participant’s plan

This service ensures the funds allocated in a person’s Individual Support Plan under the NDIS are used to pay for the support approved. Our team can provide practical and emotional support, to help clients manage their accounts, make payments upon receipt of services, claim payments from the NDIS, process expense claims and understand their monthly use of funds.
