Once you have been accepted into the NDIS you will be offered a planning meeting where your NDIS Plan will be discussed. To achieve an NDIS Plan that supports you to achieve your goals it is important to do some preparation.
Explore the areas of life where the participant needs support. Don’t only focus on the parts of their life where you or other organisations provide them with support.
Ask questions that prompt the participant to look at their whole life, like:
- What types of support do you need in your daily life, for example do you need support at home, work, school, in the community?
- Do you need any equipment or aids or consumables?
- Do you need assistance with transport or vehicle modifications?
- Do you need any housing or housing modifications?
The NDIS website has booklets you can download and complete to help you prepare. https://www.ndis.gov.au/applying-access-ndis
