Can I use NDIS to pay for Bricks4Kidz Workshops?

Can I use NDIS to pay for Bricks4Kidz Workshops?

Depending on your cicumstances you may be able to use NDIS funding to pay for our group activity focussed School Holiday Workshops and After School Workshops
Generally speaking your able to use NDIS to cover the cost of these activities if your kid’z care plan has goals in it like:
  • improving executive function
  • developing fine motor skills
  • developing social skills through group work
You pay for the sessions upfront, we provide an invoice with all the required details and you are then reimbursed via the NDIS scheme.
Normally you should nominate to use the Capacity budget but NDIS have also allowed the Core budget to be used when the capacity budget has been exhausted.  
It should be noted that our activity is NDIS approved (so parents can generally make a claim on a case-by-case basis), although as an organisation we are not a NDIS Registered provider (so approval is not automatic).

NDIS Funding and Bricks4Kidz Workshops/Activities

NDIS Funding and Bricks4Kidz Workshops/Activities

How can I update my NDIS Care Plan to allow me to access funding for Bricks4Kidz workshops & activities?

Check your NDIS care plan to see if it has any goals relating to:

  • Developing fine motor skills
  • Developing social skills
  • Developing group or team working skills

If your current care plan does not include any of the above and you believe these these goals would be beneficial to include, simply have them included when you next revise your plan.  Feel free to speak to our team for any further info!

How do workshops and other activities benefit children with autism and other special needs?

BRICKS 4 KIDZ® workshops and events can be paid for with NDIS funds if your care plan allows for it.

It’s no secret Lego® has been recognised for a long time now as an especially therapeutic and educational aid for kidz with autism and other conditions that may affect learning or limit social capabilities.

Research shows that spending time creating and building physical objects stimulates young minds and has numerous benfits including:

  • building fine motor functions
  • problem solving abilities
  • improving concentration
  • an escape from stress and anxiety

Our Lego based workshops and after school programs provide an excellent way to obtain these benefits in a safe, fun environment.  Our workshops and courses are deisgned to enhannce these benefits further by providing:

  • an environment that promotes interaction with other attendees
  • group interaction to solve problems
  • trained instructors to teach STEM concepts such as forces, structure design, gearing ratios

 Our team can help you with any NDIS related questions, just email us!

Do you manage your own NDIS Plan? You can directly access NDIS funding to attend our workshops - ask us how!

Is your NDIS plan managed? You can still access our workshops through approved NDIS Service Providers!

Speak to Empowering Futures to find out when they will be hosting their next exciting Bricks4Kidz event.
