Welcome to our first NDIS e-Magazine in partnership with Leap in!
The NDIS is in parts ground-breaking, wonderful and transforming and in others frustrating, confusing and intimidating. At its core it’s a scheme with the potential to open a world of possibilities for families of children with a disability, giving us choice and control over the supports our children receive, not just as they grow and develop, but well into their adult lives.
But therein lies the rub; along with the choice and control provided to us, comes a whole heap of things we must get our heads around. The language used, the policies to understand, the administrative and paperwork requirements, the sense of responsibility and advocacy we need to take on, budget management skills, people management skills… the list of tasks and requirements that the NDIS adds into the mix of our already hectic lives goes on and on. So, that’s where this e-Mag comes in. With the help of our very good friends at Leap in! plan management we’d like to introduce you to the first in a four-part series aimed at demystifying and simplifying the NDIS planning, management, and review processes to help you understand better what’s involved, and to support you to make use of the different resources and information available to manage your child’s NDIS access, implement their plan and help them reach their goals.
We hope you find the read informative, enjoyable and above all very useful!
