Empowering Children to Reach Their Goals

Our passionate team of psychologists, speech pathologists and educators work in partnership with children and their family to help them achieve long-term goals in their NDIS plan. This could be in a number of different areas:

Confidence and building resilience

Social skills: building friendships and community participation

Communication: developing articulation, understanding of language and speech

Sensory processing

Emotional regulation

Strategies to support behaviour

Learning: developing literacy and numeracy, including functional literacy and numeracy skills

Our NDIS Services

An assessment can help you to better understand your child’s strengths and needs, and the best supports to put in place to help them learn and develop. We offer a range of assessments, including cognitive assessments, behavioural assessments, ADHD assessments, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) assessments and comprehensive speech and language assessments to support your child’s NDIS plan and long-term goal planning.

Giving You Choice and Control Over How You Access NDIS Services

One of the primary goals of the NDIS is to provide you with greater choice and flexibility in how you access supports. The NDIS allows you to choose how you manage your funding and the providers you use and control over how you achieve the goals laid out in your NDIS plan.

There are three different ways to manage your NDIS plan:

Managed by the NDIA

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) is the body that implements the NDIS. You can choose to have your funds managed by this body. The funds you are allocated for a 12-month period will stay with the NDIA. You will choose the services you want to meet your set goals. The service providers you choose will claim from your funding pool, held by the NDIA. You can monitor how much has been spent against your goals and paid to your chosen service providers via an online portal – a bit like monitoring online banking transactions.

Managed by you

You can choose to manage NDIS funds yourself.

You will provide the NDIA with details of your bank account for a transfer of your NDIS funding. Once your plan is approved you can purchase supports from both registered NDIS providers or providers you feel can best meet your child’s goals.

Managed by a service provider or other third party

Much like the self-managed model, you can choose any service provider offering NDIS funds management – even those not registered with the NDIS. For a fee, this third party, or Plan Manager, will file and record your invoices and track you expenditure of NDIS funding, providing you with a regular update or report on your funding and goals.

Your right to advocacy support

At Learning Links, we want to ensure all families are able to fully exercise choice and control and have their voices heard. If your child is unable to advocate for themselves, our team can provide information about accessing an independent advocate.

An advocate works on behalf of you and your child to promote and protect your rights and interests and support you to exercise choice and control.

Providing the Best Possible NDIS Services and Support for Your Child

Learning Links is a Child Safe Organisation

Learning Links is committed to implementing the Child Safe Standards to ensure a safe environment for the children we work with. By embedding these standards into our everyday practice and putting the interests of children at the centre of all that we do, we’re helping to build a culture where all abuse of children is prevented, responded to and reported.

Supporting a Key Worker model

Our team works collaboratively with families and relevant external providers to facilitate children’s development and address families’ needs and priorities, including supporting them to identify a suitable key worker provider if required. A key worker acts as the primary point of contact and support for your child. They coordinate with other professionals on your behalf to help your child achieve their goals. Our psychologists and speech pathologists work collaboratively to liaise with you and other providers involved in delivering your child’s supports through the provision of consultative and non-face to face services.

If you would like to discuss how we can provide this additional support, please contact our Intake team on 1300 003 900.

Dedicated to continuous improvement

Learning Links is committed to receiving feedback from customers, members of the public, and agencies, as a means of promoting continuous improvement in our NDIS Services.  We recognise the right of any individual or group to provide feedback or raise a complaint.

Complaints lodged by parents, carers and/or professionals regarding a NDIS participant can also be lodged with the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission by contacting the Commission on 1800 035 544.

Your Child's NDIS Plan

What do I do if I want the amount approved and allocated to my child in their NDIS plan to be increased?

Any funding issue or query should be referred back to your early childhood partner, Local Area Coordinator (LAC) or NDIA planner. Unfortunately, Learning Links cannot assist you with this.

My child’s NDIS plan has only been approved for 12 months. What if my child needs your services for more than one year?

Under the NDIS, Learning Links is required to conduct a review of your child’s progress before the end of the 12-month funding period and provide this information to the NDIS. We need two week’s notices to complete this report. This will assist you to negotiate a new funding approval for your child if relevant and required.

Even though my child’s NDIS plan is for 12 months I would like to use Learning Links for less than 12 months. Is this possible?

Yes. The Service Agreement has a start and finish date which can be less than 12 months. If you would prefer less than 12 months, please let us know when we are discussing the agreement with you.

Case Management

Does Learning Links provide case management support?

Learning Links unfortunately does not provide this type of support. The NDIS has approved agencies to provide case management support. Funding for case management support needs to be approved in the NDIS Plan. Your NDIA Planner can help you with this.
