You have been accepted for NDIS, you understand the three types of funding supports, and your plan has finally arrived, how exciting!? You open it up, and it is long, and scary, and the language is convoluted. Don't let it get the better of you, we are here to help you through!
Once your first plan is finalised you will be contacted by a representative to discuss how to put it into action. This contact will happen within seven days of you receiving your plan. The NDIS will then work with you to implement your plan. This support could be provided by a Local Area Coordinator, a plan support coordinator or another party who will help you to connect with community and mainstream or funded supports.
Your first plan will give you time to think about how the supports you currently receive are working for you and what else you might need to achieve your longer-term goals before your scheduled plan review in 12 months, so feel free to play with it, try new things, and find what truly works for you.
