We often hear from members that they’re nervous about their NDIS Plan meeting. We’ve recently written an article on this topic How do I know that plan management is right for me? After confirming that NDIS plan management is right for them we help them get plan ready, with Leap in!’s Plan meeting checklist.
Step 1: Decide on the details for your NDIS Plan meeting.
- What type of meeting you would like: face to face or over the phone?
- Where would you like to be for the meeting: in your house, in your Local Area Coordinator’s office or somewhere else?
- If you have a preferred time for the meeting: morning, afternoon or evening?
- Who would you like to be involved in your Plan meeting: a family member, close friend, your partner or a person who supports you? It should be someone you know and trust.
- Do you need communication or assistive aids for the meeting?
- Do you need a translator?
