Master of Disability Practice

The Master of Disability is relevant to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). It is designed for support workers and others employed by organizations that are delivering disability services, those seeking such employment and students interested in the field of disability management.

Students will study clinical and neurobiological, professional and ethical issues in disability management and NDIS business management.

In addition, students will complete an in-depth study of disability management, addressing either one or all of the selected areas (e.g. clinical, case management or business issues) and will be required to present a major report. Graduates will be well prepared for the NDIS and the demand for new, client-driven services and support arising from the scheme.
