Music therapy, delivered by a registered music therapist, has been recognised by the NDIS for inclusion under the support cluster of Capacity Building - Improved Daily Living - which includes assessment, recommendation, therapy and/or training (including early childhood intervention).
The therapy is aimed at adjustment, adaption and building capacity for community participation. Supports can be delivered to individuals or groups.
Music Therapy & NDIS

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support to Australians with disability; their families and carers.
The NDIS will provide all Australians under the age of 65 with a permanent and significant disability with the reasonable and necessary supports they need to enjoy an ordinary life.
The NDIS will help people with disability achieve their goals, including independence, community involvement, education, employment and health and wellbeing.
As an insurance scheme, the NDIS takes a lifetime approach, investing in people with disability early to improve their outcomes later in life.
The NDIS also provides people with disability; their family and carers with information and referrals to existing support services in the community.
