Setting goals can be a new and unfamiliar process for many people. But the goal-setting process is an important part of the NDIS. Setting clear goals as part of your plan meetings means you’re more likely to get the funding you need for supports to help you achieve your goals.
Leap in! has launched the Understanding goals and achieving outcomes with the NDIS: A practical guide for success to answers all your goal related questions.
You’ll find information about goal setting for different stages of life and transitions, including goal setting for:
- Early childhood
- School-aged children
- Teenagers and young adults
- School to further education and work
- Home and living
- Social and community participation
Start at the beginning and work your way through or skip ahead to the section that’s relevant for you right now.
There’s a detailed section on setting and achieving your employment goals, including information about how the NDIS can help so you can align your goals with NDIS budget categories.
Plus you can put what you learn into practice with the included goal worksheet.
