National Disability Insurance Scheme - NDIS

Mpower therapists and early childhood intervention staff are already providing NDIS funded supports to children who have already been accepted into the scheme.

Mpower’s multi-disciplinary team of skilled speech pathologists, occupational therapists and physiotherapists works closely with children and their families. Their aim is to ensure they receive the support and services they need to reach their full potential and maximise their quality and enjoyment of life.

Our programs can support a child’s development in areas such as:
  • Communication
  • Learning
  • Self-help skills
  • Gross and fine motor skills
  • Sensory awareness,
  • Social skills and
  • Behaviour issues.
Families can choose a mix of services that best meet their needs. Services are flexibly delivered and can be provided:
  • In the family home
  • At the Mpower offices in Warrnambool
  • At other locations requested by the family

The full regional rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme commences on 1 October, 2017.

If you need any help with information on the NDIS or assistance to get ready for your first NDIS plan our Mpower Intake and Client Engagement Team can assist you or you can also talk to your Mpower Key Worker.

Contact Mpower Intake and Client Engagement Team on intake@mpower.org.au or your Mpower Key Worker.

Getting ready for your first Plan
Mpower’s Intake and Engagement Team have been helping families and new participants start planning for their first NDIS plan.

Mpower’s NDIS Information sessions are being held regularly.  If you are eligible as a participant, or are a parent/carer or legal guardian you can attend one of our sessions. Please check the dates with reception and book in at your earliest convenience.

Getting ready for your planning conversation
It is important that you are prepared for your planning meeting. The Mpower NDIS Planning workbook is available for you to use.

The workbook helps you think about the information that you will need to share with your NDIS planner - the things that you like and are good at, what helps you to be successful, key people, your current activities and community supports and your goals. You can download an NDIS Getting Plan Ready form or contact the Mpower Team to receive our planning workbook.
