Neuromuscular Fact Sheets

To address some of the issues identified by people with neuromuscular conditions in getting appropriate and adequate funding in their NDIS plans, we have developed a series of plain English fact sheets on the most common conditions.

The fact sheets include:

  • Information on conditions in plain English
  • Information on how the condition can affect the person
  • What supports typically assist a person to be independent and fully participate in community life
  • Interpreter access information and helpful links
