I have been advised by Autism SA that the Department of Social Services has released the following information: families with children aged 0-4 in receipt of HCWA funding will have until 3rd June 2014 to contact NDIA and begin the transition process to the NDIS. Autism SA has also been advised that if families do not contact the NDIA within this timeframe, their child will be deemed ineligible for HCWA and their early intervention funding will be discontinued. Families may however be able to seek access to the NDIS as a new client at any later time, this may result in a gap in early intervention support for their child. Should you require any further information I suggest that you look on the HCWA and NDIS websites for further information.
