How to Get Neurological Disorders NDIS Support?
A neurological disorder is indicative of any ailment that impacts the nervous system, encompassing the brain, spinal cord, and nerves spanning the body. These disorders have the potential to impede a person’s mobility, speech, cognition, and emotions. They arise from diverse triggers like genetics, infections, trauma, or exposure to harmful substances. Instances of neurological disorders comprise conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, migraines, Huntington’s disease, cerebral palsy, and stroke.
Symptoms of neurological disorders can vary widely depending on the specific disorder and the individual, but may include tremors, seizures, loss of sensation, memory loss, or difficulty with movement or coordination.
Many neurological disorders are chronic and require ongoing management and treatment, while others may be temporary or can be cured with proper treatment. Treatment options may include medications, therapy, surgery, or lifestyle changes. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional if you suspect you or a loved one may be experiencing symptoms of a neurological disorder.
Eligibility Criteria for Neurological Disorders NDIS Support
To access support for neurological disorders under the NDIS, individuals need to meet the eligibility criteria and go through the assessment and planning process. This process involves working with an NDIS planner or Local Area Coordinator (LAC) to identify the person’s goals and support needs. Once the person’s plan is developed, it will include funding for support services if they are identified as a need.
