The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a program in Australia that helps people with disabilities and their families get the support they need.
The NDIS pays for different kinds of therapy services that help people living with disabilities, including Exercise Physiology. An Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) is a person who knows a lot about the human body and how exercise can help keep us healthy and strong.
They can help people with disabilities by making special exercise plans that are safe and right for them.
This can help people living with disabilities feel better and do more things on their own.
If you have NDIS, you might be able to get Exercise Physiology services. You can check with your NDIS planner to see if your plan has money for it. If it does, you can use that money to see an AEP.
If your plan doesn’t have money for it, you might be able to get it at your next plan review.
To see an AEP through NDIS, you need to follow these steps:
- Talk to your NDIS planner and make sure you can get Exercise Physiology services.
- Find a provider that offers the services you need. You can find one near you online or by talking to a Support Coordinator or Local Area Coordinator.
- Make an appointment to see an AEP and they will assess you and make a special exercise plan just for you.
