This is often the topic of conversation when people start getting ready to meet with their planners. The uncertainty behind what they class as reasonable and necessary supports, or if your disability is classed as significant.
The NDIS is the new way of providing disability support, it’s new so there will be hiccups. I can’t encourage you all enough, to be calm, think about what you can control at the time and just do that.
Make sure you familiarize yourself with the scheme and have a read up on testimonials – but try to stay away from the disaster stories. Remember that people like to complain more than they like to compliment.
Don’t be afraid to ask questions, and lots of questions! There is no such thing as a silly question.
