Our Services

Neuromuscular Support

In November 2019, the Client Services team from Muscular Dystrophy South Australia joined I Can Jump Puddles.

We are excited to welcome this expert ‘Neuro Team’ to our range of services and continue to provide this specialist support to those living with neuromuscular conditions in SA.

Our specialist ‘Neuro Team’ at I Can Jump Puddles provides expert support to people living with a variety of neuromuscular conditions, including Muscular Dystrophy.

We offer professional advice and support from diagnosis and beyond, and can help you and your family carefully navigate the journey forward.

Our team will work with you to gain access to the National Disability Insurance Scheme. We understand the progressive nature of neuromuscular conditions and we can support you to understand what is needed in your NDIS Plan.

Support Coordination & Specialised Support Coordination

Our Neuro Team can provide Support Coordination at all three levels: Specialist Support Coordination, Support Coordination and Support Connection.

Coordination of Supports is a funded service within a participant’s NDIS plan that assists you to understand and make use of your plan.

One of our Support Coordinators can help you understand how you can use your NDIS funding, find and recruit suitable support workers, access suitable allied health professionals, access capacity building programs, get the equipment you need, and more.

Our Neuro Team can also work with you and your family to create a Housing Plan, which is where Specialist Support Coordination often comes in. A Housing Plan can assist you to find suitable accommodation based on your needs.

Camps

Muscular Dystrophy South Australia used to facilitate camps and getaways for people living with a neuromuscular condition, of all ages. We are proud to announce that well-established camp and getaway provider, Cara, will be continuing these camps. Visit Cara’s website for more information or ask your Support Coordinator from I Can Jump Puddles.
