NDIS stands for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, which helps those who have a permanent and serious disability that limits their capacity to take part in daily activities. The NDIS gives you more options and flexibility over how and when you receive your support while ensuring you get the help you need for the rest of your life. It also focuses on early intervention, which can help you or your kid decrease the impact of the impairment. However, NDIS does not replace other government or community services.
A support coordinator assists participants in coordinating and implementing their support plan, allowing them to participate more actively in their community. Support coordinators assist participants in the following areas:
Participants may be eligible for financing for various services through their plan, depending on their individual conditions, such as their disability and functional impact on the participant’s life, as well as whether they have family, caregivers, or other sorts of support in their life.
The NDIS provides funding in three major categories:
Your initial NDIS plan will focus on your current support, goals, and personal needs. A representative from the NDIS will facilitate you in describing the services you could need and will work with you to provide flexibility and choice over the organizations, workers, and equipment on which you may wish to spend your funding.
You will get to see an overview of your specific funded support systems and requirements in your scheme, as well as personal information about you and the targets your plan will aim to achieve, a breakdown of budget allocations and classifications for each of your supports, and contact details for any NDIA help. The NDIA would provide support and clear communication at each and every stage to ensure independence and total control over your plan and individual needs.
