Surfing the Spectrum

This year, DAS are teaming up with Surfing the Spectrum. They are a great organization, offering free surfing lessons to people aged 5-18 living with Autism.

Surfing the Spectrum is a not-for-profit Surf Therapy initiative working to positively impact the lives of families, and their children with Autism. In partnership with local surf schools, Surfing the Spectrum conducts “Surfing Events” which connect children with autism to local surfers in order to provide free surf lessons.

If you would like to enroll your child, please visit their website https://surfingthespectrum.org/ for more info.

TTP PRICES

As you may be aware the NDIS released a pricing update this year in July.

Included in the update was an option for “TTP” payments.

Only certain providers meet the requirements for these price, Dynamic Ability Support are one of them.

Part of this eligibility requires us to inform all Participants that we will be using the TTP prices, which can be found here, the main line items used by DAS are listed below.

The TTP prices only affect Participants with Daily Living or Social and Community Access funding from Core budgets.


The conditional loading will assist providers to continue transforming their businesses in the move towards a more competitive marketplace.

In the coming weeks we will issue updated service agreement outlining the new prices. Rest assured there will be no changes to your hours of support as the NDIS automatically increased your budget to suit the new price guide.
