Does the NDIS fund tutoring?
The NDIS doesn’t fund private tutoring as it is considered the responsibility of the education system. The rationale for this is that Government funding is already provided to students with additional needs, through extra supports in the the school system such as teacher’s aides, support classes and small group supervision.
Some schools also offer additional tutoring programs which are supported by Government grants.
