Understanding the NDIS Part 1

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

As part of ACWA's commitment to building sector capacity in supporting vulnerable children and young people with a disability, we have two important training opportunities coming up. This link will register you for the first webinar - search the CCWT website for Understanding the NDIS Part 2 to register in the second webinar.

UNDERSTANDING THE NDIS (101) - a two part Webinar series

 In partnership with DCJ, AbSec, and the NDIS, these webinars will be presented by Ally O'Rourke, a senior leader from the National Disability Insurance Agency.  The webinars are aimed at practitioners and may be particularly valuable for Case Managers. You are welcome to attend one or both of the webinars. The format will be an in-depth webinar, followed by plenty of opportunities for exploring some specific case studies and taking general and specific questions you may have. 

The first webinar will provide a comprehensive overview of how the scheme works - critical information for practitioners. This will include:

  • Understanding the NDIS
  • Access and eligibility requirements
  • Pathways and roles
  • The Early Childhood approach
