Reasonable and necessary NDIS supports

16 May 2022

Reasonable and necessary supports are those that are related to a person's disability, provide value for money, and are likely to work and benefit the person. They don't include day-to-day living costs that aren't related to the person's disability support needs. Reasonable and necessary supports take into account any informal supports that the person already has. These informal supports might include help and support from friends, family, local services, and the health and education systems.

The reasonable and necessary supports provided through the NDIS help children to reach their individual goals and become more independent. The supports and services included in your child's NDIS plan are based on their NDIS goals. In general, the reasonable and necessary supports should help children to: participate in social and community activities, look after their health and wellbeing, and become more independent.

The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) decides what is reasonable and necessary for children using rules and guidelines in the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013. This includes deciding what supports are reasonable and necessary for your child.
