How can I prepare for my NDIS planning meeting?
Muscular Dystrophy NSW has designed a simple planning toolkit to be used a guide to assist people with neuromuscular conditions prepare for their NDIS planning and regular review meetings.
It’s really important to put time and thought into preparing for your NDIS planning meeting. Being well prepared for the planning and review meetings will increase the chance of getting a plan you are happy with, being well supported and reduce the need to appeal decisions in the future.
You will have to consider such things as:
- What are your goals?
- How you plan to achieve your goals?
- What are the current supports you have in place?
- Are there any additional supports you require?
If you are not sure what types of supports you currently receive, you can contact one of our staff members on 9888 5711 to assist you in preparing for this meeting. We are here to help!
The toolkit contains a series of fact sheets, editable forms, checklists and templates that create a toolkit of handy planning resources designed specifically for people with physical, progressive disability. It is best to read and use the resources in order, as planning is a process, however they can be used as stand-alone tools if required. Please take the time to review this workbook prior to your planning meeting.
