Need Help with Funding?
Being a parent can be stressful enough, but having to think about the costs of therapy programs for your child can be even more frustrating and disheartening especially when you know this is what your child needs but you just can’t afford it. Here are some avenues to explore when seeking help in funding:
National Disability Insurance Scheme
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides Early Childhood funding for children 0-7y with developmental delays so they can access the therapy services they need. For children over the age of 7 and adults up to the age of 65, funding from NDIS is limited to those with permanent and significant disabilities. Visit http://www.ndis.gov.au/ to learn more about NDIS eligibility for support funding.
Please note that SeeChange Therapy provides NDIS services to clients who are Plan Managed or Self Managed only. For clients with NDIS plans that are agency managed, please speak with your ECEI planner or LAC to arrange your child’s NDIS plan management. Children from 0-6 years who have a developmental delay or disability can access funding support through the NDIS Early Childhood Early Intervention partner Northcott. For more information please visit https://northcott.com.au/ndis-early-childhood-early-intervention-ecei/
If you have Medicare and a referral from a GP or Paediatrician under the Mental Health Care Plan or Chronic Disease Management Plan (CDMP), we may be able to assist you in getting a rebate on your allied health services and treatment with SeeChange Therapy.
Private Health Insurance
Certain private health insurers cover ancillary or extras that may include therapy. We advise you to contact your private health insurer to gain more information.

The rewards and unique challenges that come with neurodiversity shape relationships for our clients with their family, friends, and members of the community. We empathise with families and understand the frustration and feelings of isolation that can come with caring for a child with additional needs. We believe it is a shared responsibility to create environments where neurodivergent children can flourish. This begins with fostering authentic relationships with a child’s support network and ensuring that relationships are underpinned by understanding, empowerment, and acceptance. SeeChange aims to collaborate with families and connect with other services to create a new way of being in our community where everyone is truly valued.
