Accessing the Service - NDIS participants

If you are eligible for, or registered as a participant of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), you will need to have clinical hours on your plan available for an initial assessment. If you require a wheelchair or modifications to your wheelchair, you also need to have these on your NDIS plan.

A quote can be provided for an initial assessment at the Wheelchair and Seating Service. After assessment, we will be able to provide a more specific quote for your wheelchair seating solution and you will need to gain approval through the NDIS.

You may have already seen a clinician in the community before you attend an appointment for an initial assessment at the WSS. The clinician you have seen can provide the WSS information about what you discussed and your goals. Alternatively, you may be sent a short self-assessment form to help with identifying your goals for your wheelchair and seating. Your clinician may refer you or, if you have seen us before, you can contact the service directly on 8440 6760 or DHSWheelchair&SeatingService@sa.gov.au to discuss your need or make an appointment.

If you are a clinician wanting to refer a participant to the WSS, please complete the Equipment Request Form – NDIS, requesting a WSS appointment in the 'equipment requested' section and send to DES as per the instructions on the form:

We will liaise with you, or a person nominated by you, to arrange an appointment. We will send you a letter before your appointment, with details of how to locate the service, including a map with available car parking.

An overview of the process can be seen here:
