As of June 1st 2022 the Mid-West Community Healthcare organisation have implemented the National Policy on Access to Services for Children with Disability or Developmental Delay 2019.
The policy itself can be found here.
CDNT are the providers of services for children with complex difficulties in functional skills and/or applied skill sets required for activities of daily living, learning new skills and social interactions. This may involve physical, social, emotional, communication and behavioural domains. Services and supports are provided from birth until their 18th birthday, however may be extended to completion of secondary school up to the 19th birthday, if appropriate to address specific needs.
How to Make a Referral
All referrals to a CDNT should be made using the new Children’s Services Referral Form. CDNT’s will have an open referral policy, which means that they will accept appropriate referrals from any source, including parents.
The form can be found here.
Catchment Areas for the 7 CDNTs in the Mid-West can be viewed in the catchment area map which can be viewed here.
