A note about the

National Disability Insurance



Malvern Speech Pathology is happy to work with clients who have a funded package through NDIS. However, clients will have to either self-manage their speech pathology funding or have a plan manager in order to be seen at MSP. NDIS has made it increasingly costly to become a registered provider and therefore it is beyond the scope of our practice. Please contact Claire for further information.
