The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support and funding for individuals with disabilities, their families and carers. The NDIS is about empowering individuals to be the best they can be.
Dr. Taylor is autistic. Through her own lived experience, medical training and advocacy works she has developed a range of resources that can be used to assist other similar individuals reach their full potential.
Assistive technology is an area in which Dr. Taylor has a strong focus - particularly with respect to the Apple eco-system. Apple has focussed its products on being simple while ensuring that a wide range of features and applications are available to assist different users. Dr. Taylor is able to provide guidance and training in the use of various products and applications.
Navigating the NDIS can be challenging and you may not know what assistance is available to help achieve your goals. Dr. Taylor is familiar with the NDIS and can assist in applying and maximising the benefits from any approved funding.
Approval of applications remains entirely at the prerogative of the NDIA.
Communication skills, executive functioning (including time management, organisation skills) and social skills are core areas that those on the autism spectrum can benefit from extra assistance.
NDIS funding may be available for these areas.
Subject to demand small group classes are expected to be available.
Assistive technology, using Apple products and various applications, will benefit many in day to day life. Dr. Taylor offers small workshops that explain the technologies and applications available.
