ART extended until 31 December 2024

Queensland Government has extended the Assessment and Referral Team until 31 December 2024. The team will continue to support eligible at-risk children and young people aged 7-25 years to apply to the NDIS.

ART will also continue to deliver capacity and capability building activities to strengthen knowledge and understanding of NDIS access processes across government and the sector.

Help available for children and young people aged 7-25 to access the NDIS.

ART provides an intensive case management approach to support eligible children and young people to access the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

ART can help you throughout the entire access process from start to finish by:

  • Filling out application forms, preparing and collecting documentation and, where required, arranging specialised assessments
  • Liaising with doctors and specialists to gather information and evidence
  • Submitting your completed application to the NDIS and tracking its progress until you receive an outcome.

Note: If you would like to access and / or download a copy of your referral after you submit it, please register here before you submit your referral.
