Forging Roots Education provides NDIS tutoring in Melbourne to plan managed and self managed NDIS participants.
Our specialised, one-to-one tutoring helps participants reach their goals of becoming more independent, developing employment skills, or reducing the impacts of a disability or developmental delay.
What is the NDIS?
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a national scheme for Australian children and adults who are either born with or acquire a permanent and significant disability. It provides funding for reasonable and necessary supports and services that relate to a person’s disability to help them achieve their goals.
To learn more about the NDIS, visit their website or 1800 800 110.
Will NDIS fund tutoring?
Tutoring is not currently funded by the NDIS. However, if you, or your child is an NDIS participant who is self-managed or plan managed, we can provide educational support. We are an unregistered NDIS provider, and will bill you directly through our ABN.
Forging Roots Education caters for children and adults with special needs, communication difficulties, learning disabilities and learning difficulties. These can include Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, students with ADHD, students with complex communication needs that use AAC, and students who have difficulties with literacy and maths.
It doesn’t matter if your child doesn’t have an ‘official’ diagnosis for their learning difficulties yet. If they are struggling to learn in their school setting, we can help. The earlier the right specialist support is in place, the better the outcome for your child.

How do I know if my child has a learning disability or difficulty?
Is your child slow to learn new skills? Does your child have difficulty with:
- Learning the connection between letters and sounds
- Blending sounds to make words
- Reading and spelling irregular words that cannot be sounded out easily
- Understanding what they are reading, or do they read slowly and with frequent errors, or at a level below most of their peers
- Planning, co-ordination and organisation
- Attention, concentrating or controlling their impulses
- Learning basic maths concepts
- Remembering sequences and procedures
If the answer is YES to any of the above, then your child may have a learning difficulty and/or learning disability.
NDIS Tutoring for Learning Disabilities
If your child is struggling at school, or you or your child has been diagnosed with a learning difficulty/disability, then contact us to find out how we can help build strong foundations for learning in maths and reading, writing and phonics. We can also recommend local educational psychologists who may be able to assess you or your child.
