What We Do > ALLIED HEALTH
The NDIS will spend around $4.4 billion on Allied Health at full rollout.
Getting NDIS ready can seem complex. But in truth, you don’t even need to register with the NDIS to get started. Our Allied Health Subject Matter Specialists
NDIS SUBJECT MATTER SPECIALISTS
DSC's Subject Matter Specialists are sector leaders in their fields.
Sally is our resident NDIS wonderwoman (also fondly known as our ‘pocket rocket’). Don't be disarmed by her humour, she packs a punch with her huge NDIS knowledge, intellect and energy. Sally has diverse experience across financial services, human services, B2B, B2C, for profit and for purpose industries around the world. Sally is especially passionate marketing products, services, spaces and experiences for people with a disability. Sally is a dynamic trainer and presenter, a Certified Practicing Marketer and lecturer in Marketing at the University of Newcastle. She is a Director of the Centre for Universal Design and a past member of the NSW Disability Council. Sally was also the CEO of a disability service provider during the Hunter NDIS trial. And, she finished her Masters at Harvard (did we mention she’s dynamic?).
One of Sally’s three young daughters, Nicky, lives with quadriplegia and has been an NDIS participant since 2015. Sally translates her personal and professional experience into a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities for business.
INSIGHT IN ACTION
As NDIS participants become more market savvy, allied health providers are going need to make some conscious decisions about how to differentiate themselves. Sally provides guidance with the 5 things she always looks for in allied health providers.
The NDIA relies on the advice of allied health professionals to determine if people are eligible for Specialist Disability Accommodation and the extent of their funding. This guide developed by the Summer Foundation supports practitioners with the information, resources and templates they need to conduct a housing assessment.
Reports written by health and allied health professionals have a lot of power in the NDIS, but often the people writing them are not disability natives. This handy toolkit supports practitioners to get the best outcome for participants.
