What is a Local Area Coordinator? 

A Local Area Coordinator (LAC) is someone who will work with many NDIS participants (seven years and older) to confirm or assess their eligibility, undertake NDIS planning, and review supports in NDIS plans when they are reviewed.

Children under seven years of age will not have a LAC, they may have an Early Childhood partner.

What do Early Childhood Partners (ECPs) do?

In order to deliver the NDIS Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) approach, the NDIS has partnered with early childhood organisations. They are known as an Early Childhood Partner (ECP). The Early Childhood Partner is the point of contact for parents who feel their child has developmental delay or disability. They will discuss with you the most appropriate supports that will assist your child. The people who work for the Early Childhood Partners have specialist skills and experience in supporting children with developmental delay or disability, and may be allied health clinicians.

Who can support my child to use the funded supports in their NDIS plan? 

When you go through the planning process with the NDIS for your child, let the planner know if you need some support to implement your child’s plan.

There are three levels of Support Coordination that you may be funded for in a NDIS plan.

Yooralla can also support you when you get your NDIS plan. We are holding free one-on-one sessions to help you to understand what’s in your child’s NDIS plan and we have a free guide to implementing a NDIS plan.
