Supporting Evidence Form
If we need more information from you so we can make a decision about your request, we will let you know. You can then ask your treating health professional to complete the Supporting Evidence Form.
If the NDIA requests more information from you after you have submitted your access request you can:
- Have your treating health professional complete the SEF
- Get them to give you the completed form in person or by email
- Return the completed form to us by email, post, or take it to your local NDIA office.

If you don’t currently use disability services, or you have questions about how to apply, please contact us.
For children younger than 7:
- contact an early childhood partner in your local area.
In some areas, such as remote and very remote areas of NSW, NT, QLD, SA & WA we do not have early childhood partners to deliver our early childhood approach.
If you live in an area that does not have an early childhood partner, you have a child younger than 7 and you have concerns about their development or disability you can:
- speak with your doctor, child health nurse, remote community connector, early childhood educator or other health professional
- contact your nearest NDIS office. Visit the Contact Us page or call us on 1800 800 110 for further information
- email us at [email protected] or contact us by using webchat.
We will work with you to connect you and your child to the NDIS or to supports in your community.
The NDIS will cover the cost of providing supports to you and your child under the early childhood approach, where applicable.
