To be eligible for SDA, you must have an extreme functional impairment or very high support needs. 

Having extreme functional impairment means that even if your home has been set up to suit you, you still need assistance to do things like:

  •  Getting out of bed 
  • Getting dressed 
  • Making meals
  • Going out 

If you want the NDIS to think about whether you can live in SDA, make “I want to live as independently as possible” one of the goals in your NDIS plan.
