DSS FUNDING

There are two types of funding streams under the Department of Social Services (DSS), previously known as FaHCSIA funding:

HCWA – Helping Children with Autism Package

BETTER START - The Better Start for Children with Disability initiative

  • $12,000 available funding for early intervention services and treatments
  • Up to a maximum of $6,000 in any one financial year
  • $2,100 can be used for resources per financial year

Families are required to present their Letter of Introduction from Amaze prior to claiming services through Splash Therapy. 

After each session, families will be required to sign a Service Delivery form indicating that the session has been completed. Families will receive a quarterly statement from DSS regarding their funding balances.
