Payment options

There are a number of payment options for the Group Social Skills programs to suit various individual needs including:

  • Individual upfront payment
  • Through your NDIS plan funding
  • We understand that upfront payment may be difficult for some families. If this is the case, you may choose to be invoiced for your registration on the day of the program starting. This invoice must be claimed immediately through the NDIS and then payment forwarded to Hear and Say within five days.
