Getting NDIS in WA Plan Ready
A participant's first plan may include a transition of their current supports only. This will provide a continuity of access to supports for the participant, whilst they are provided the time to consider other goals they may wish to include in their plan, in readiness for when their review is scheduled.
As the parent or carer of a person with disability, it is likely you have developed a good understanding of the impact their disability has on their day-to-day activities. This means you are well placed to support them through the pre-planning process and to capture additional goals the person may have.
Helpful things to bring along to the meeting:
- Reports, functional assessments and information on the person’s disability
- Good day bad scenarios, to ensure all necessary support is captured
- Completed Carers Checklist or completed Mental Health Carer checklist
- Documented strengths, interests, challenges in daily activities
- Documented short term and long term goals.
- Completed Planning Guide
- Carers Statement (Please click here for examples)
- Evidence of age and residency to verify the participant's access request
It is important to keep copies of all documentary evidence provided to the Local Coordinator and service providers, including the Planning Workbook, reports, and checklists. It is also advisable to keep a record of any communication held between yourself and the Local Coordinator and service providers. Be sure to document the date, time and name of the person, this will help you to recall all relevant information if required to do so at a later date.
