Preparing for the NDIS


Prepare for the NDIS


With the NDIS rolling out across the country from July 2016, there is a lot of things you can start doing now, so that you are ready for when it rolls out in your area.

Get yourself a notepad or diary, and start recording your ideas, so it’s ready to take to your planning meeting.

Be precise

The NDIS will transform disability services as we know it. Disregard all the barriers you’ve encountered in the past and write down the things you wish you could do including any dreams or aspirations.

Remember the small things

Take full advantage of the NDIS and all it offers, by being specific. Be very clear about what it is you need to live your day-to-day life, and the things that would make a big difference to your life.

Talk the talk

The NDIS has brought with it a whole new language. It might seem overwhelming at first, but it’s easy enough to understand what the terms mean, with annecto’s NDIS glossary.

Stop worrying

There are organisations like annecto who will work with you to secure the reasonable and necessary supports you need to reach your goals in life.  Feel free to call us on 1800 266 328 if you have any questions prior to NDIS being rolled out in your area, we’d be happy to help.

Get your paperwork ready

Have all your paperwork ready to discuss with your planner. Download the Planning Workbook from the NDIS website to help you arrange all your ideas and documents. This means any medical, education, or health documents that help explain who you are and what your needs might be.

Ask a friend

You don’t have to do this alone. Take someone who knows you really well who can help support you through the plan and make sure you are thinking about all aspects of your life.

Give us a call
