Accessing specialist disability services
How to make contact with Disability Services and request support or referral to another service.
Learn about the eligibility criteria that apply when requesting specialist support from Disability Services.
If you have requested specialist disability support, you may also have an assessment so that Disability Services can learn about your needs and goals and check your eligibility.
Requests for support are given different priority because demand for specialist services outweighs supply. People who contact disability services are linked to available services wherever possible.
When you are receiving specialist support from Disability Services, your support plan is reviewed in order to ensure the services you use are still meeting your needs.
National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)
The NDIS is the new way of providing support for people with disability.
As the NDIS is rolled out, eligible people will receive their supports from the NDIS. Find out if the NDIS is available where you live and how to apply for supports.
If the NDIS is not yet available in your area, you can find out more about disability support and services currently available in Queensland.
