What is NDIS specialist disability accommodation?
NDIS Specialist Disability Accommodation is a provision that allows people with very high support needs to live comfortably and provide them with daily support. These can be shared assisted living units, community living units, or freestanding houses that are constructed in a way that caters to the needs of individuals with disability. Specialist Disability Accommodation (SDA) is not the same as Supported Independent Living (SIL). While SDA provides accommodation that eases the lives of NDIS participants, SDA refers to the support services participants receive to help them live independently.
What does living in Specialist Disability Accommodation entail?
An SDA home is constructed to suit the requirements of a person with disabilities. This living arrangement facilitates maximum independent movement for the participant. It helps ensure the disabled person gets to have normal living circumstances. The accommodation can be a townhouse, villa, or duplex, or even a group home.
