Windmill Program Disability Supports
In order to minimise the risk of exposing country families and in turn spreading COVID-19 to largely untouched regional and remote communities, it is with regret that we have decided to postpone all camps for the foreseeable future.
We look forward to restarting our NDIS Windmill camps in Manly as soon as it’s safe to do so.
Until then, we are able to offer our interdisciplinary Windmill program via video link (Telecare) to deliver individualised therapy directly you and your child at home, school or community setting – an effective and easy way for you to receive therapy. All you need is a computer or laptop with a webcam, microphone and speaker and access to high-speed internet.

- Step 3: Service delivery– We’ll introduce you to your therapy team, which may include a psychologist, occupational therapist,speech pathologist, developmental educator and/or social worker..

The NDIS (or National Disability Insurance Scheme) is a government initiative, which has been put into place to help improve access to services for anyone with disabilities.
Implemented by the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA), the Scheme allows its participants and their families to choose the sort of help they need and receive it in a way that suits them, whether that be emotionalassistance, intervention therapies, information services, community health services or other types of support.
The NDIA works with NDIS participants to develop plans tailored to the needs of the individual. Participants will then receive a funding package, which they can allocate to the services that best meet their needs.
The level of financial assistance provided will relate directly to the individual’s requirements, and can be adjusted to suit your child’s changing needs and circumstances.
