The National Disability insurance Agency has developed a pathway for children who are deaf or hard of hearing to access the National Disability insurance Scheme with minimal delay following the diagnosis of hearing loss in a child aged 0-6 years. The pathway emphasises the strong support role of the Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) partner in supporting parents through the pathway experience.
Information about the new pathway for children diagnosed with a permanent hearing loss is available in the Fact Sheet - NDIS Pathway: Hearing Stream 0-6 years
