CareNavigator.com.au names Speech Pathology among most searched NDIS services
CareNavigator.com.au, a free website that helps people search and review NDIS providers, has named Speech Pathology among the most searched for NDIS services. The website currently lists over 2300 NDIS care providers Australia-wide with new providers added every day.
In a blog post titled '5 Top Searched NDIS Services On CareNavigator.com.au', the site highlights Speech Pathologists along with Occupational Therapists (OTs), Support Coordinators, Personal Care/Support Workers & Physiotherapists as professionals in high demand.
The data is the culmination of thousands of searches from users all over Australia. Since going live in February of this year, CareNavigator.com.au has been embraced by people with disability, carers, advocates and care professionals as an easy to use tool for finding and choosing local care providers across the country.
The post also notes dentistry as a prominent search on CareNavigator.com.au, giving the profession an honourable mention. However, as dental care is not covered under NDIS, the site chose not to feature Dentists in the list of most searched services.
With great expectations for a 'jobs boom' as the rollout of the National Disability Insurance Scheme ramps up this year, the data from CareNavigator.com.au gives the industry an early indication of areas of key workforce demand. Major launches for the Scheme are due from July across large parts of NSW, North Queensland and North East Melbourne. July will also see expansions of age groups covered by the NDIS in Tasmania and a similar expansion in South Australia is already underway.
