Plan managers Leap in! have this to say:
“On its own, ADHD is not usually covered by the NDIS because it can be hard to meet the NDIS eligibility criteria.
Eligibility is determined on a case- by-case basis rather than diagnosis. Your child must have a disability causing an impairment that:
- Is permanent or likely to be permanent
- Results in substantially reduced capacity to undertake day-to-day activities
- Affects their capacity for social or economic participation
- Means they are likely to need lifelong support.
Where ADHD occurs alongside another condition such as an intellectual disability, the child may be more likely to obtain NDIS funding.”
