NDIS AND CREATIVE THERAPY
Will the NDIS fund creative therapy?
All of our therapists at Creative Therapy Adelaide are professionally registered with the National Disability Insurance Scheme qualifying registration bodies: the Australian Music Therapy Association (AMTA), Speech Therapy Australia (SPA) or The Australian, New Zealand and Asian Creative Arts Therapies Association (ANZACATA). These registering bodies are responsible for overseeing the ethical and professional standards of therapists they register.
Music therapy and Dance Movement Therapy are allied health services or ‘therapeutic supports’. When you are enquiring about therapies for purchase with NDIS funding, it is important to request evidence of the professional registration your therapist holds to ensure the therapist is suitably qualified and their services will be covered by the National Disability Insurance Scheme.
Will I be able to use my NDIS funding with CTA?
Creative Therapy is a registered NDIS provider. We can support participants who are agency-managed, plan-managed or self-managed.
What funding in my plan can be used for these therapies?
If you have NDIS funding under ‘Capacity Building: Improved Daily Living’, you may choose to use that funding, or part of that funding, to access all therapy services at Creative Therapy Adelaide.
