Get the most from your NDIA plan
We were very lucky, Cerebral Palsy Alliance organised a preparation meeting where they went through and discussed each of the areas involved in the NDIS planning meeting. We noted all the services, resources and equipment we wished to apply for including how many hours of therapy and services we thought our daughter needed to be successful in reaching her goals.
To start you on your National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) journey a representative from the National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will contact you to discuss the supports, services and equipment you need from your plan. It’s an important session and there’s a lot to think about, but we can help you get ready.
We’re offering free one-to-one preparation and support meetings to new and existing clients
Together we will work through a comprehensive preparation document to identify your key goals and the services, supports, therapies and equipment you will need to achieve those goals.
It’s a big meeting, but you will walk away with a preparation document that outlines the key information you need for your planning session. You can even keep working on it when you get home.
We recommend that you discuss your preparation document with your NDIA planner, along with any other documentation you have prepared.
I took my preparation document that I’d completed with Cerebral Palsy Alliance, my outline of a normal day in our household, my folder containing medical reports in case these were needed and any other documents or lists I had prepared that I thought would help assist our planner either get to understand and know our daughter or assist in deciding what she required in preparing her plan. Once your plan has been approved, you may need support implementing it. We have a team of people ready to help you implement your plan and prepare you for reviews.
And don’t worry if you forget something or if the plan needs to change before the next scheduled review meeting. The NDIA has a process to cover this and we will help you get your plan right for you and your family.
