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 Specialist Consultants can assist you with the when, where, how and what of the NDIS.
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 daughters, Nicky, who passed away in 2018, was an NDIS participant for four years. Sally translates her personal and professional experience into a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities for business.
INSIGHT IN ACTION
The secret weapon to excellent results in the NDIS is strong allied health reports. That is why we are always on the lookout for resources that make practitioners job a little easier. In this article, we look at VALID’s 10 Step Guide to Excellent Allied Health Reports.
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.
