Recently I shared some time on a Sunday morning to meet up with some of the parents from the Brisbane’s West Autism ADHD Network to share information around the NDIS.
I was joined by a team of generous souls who also are members of our group – comprising a Support Coordinator, Occupational Therapist and Mental Health Social Worker and together we sought to answer questions which ranged from:
- How to gain access to the NDIS
- What are early childhood supports
- What supports exist for teens and
- How to managed your funding
- Understanding the pricing guide
And so in typical hyperfocus mode, I put my head down over the next week to create a handy resource for other families in my community – with the information around these questions – providing information on access, and sharing what typical supports can look like for Autistic families and what a typical funding package can look like.
I hope this resource is helpful to you, or someone you know – it’s completely free and downloadable now to be used to learn more about the NDIS.

Use our guide to help you understand more about the NDIS for your Autistic family member.
We’ve spoken to many therapists and parents about what is commonly funded for Autistic children in their NDIS plans.
We’ve prepared this guide to help you understand what you need to gain access, and once you do receive a plan we explain what typical supports can look like that are funded by the NDIS.
