Common NDIS mistakes & how to avoid them.

Here at the Leap in! HQ, we hear all about people’s NDIS journeys including some of the mistakes people wish they’d known to avoid before they got started.

To help give your NDIS journey the very best start, we thought we’d share four things to avoid.

  1. Don’t assume your supports roll over automatically.

    Every time you receive a new NDIS Plan, you’ll need to contact your existing service providers if you want to continue receiving NDIS support and get a service agreement drawn up. Even if you’ve been with that service provider for years or decades.

  2. Don’t show up to your NDIS Plan meeting or Plan Review meeting unprepared.

    No matter how comfortable you feel, it’s still beneficial to do some preparation for your Plan meeting or Plan Review meeting. We’ve developed the Leap in! app specifically to support you in preparing for your NDIS meeting and managing your NDIS budget.

  3. Don’t waste any of your NDIS funding.

    Did you know that a lot of NDIS funding never gets used? Don’t be one of the people who misses out. While there’s a lot of reasons why people don’t use their NDIS funding, and sometimes it’s out of their control, sometimes it’s simply a case of not understanding how to get the most out of your plan. That’s where Leap in! plan management can help.

  4. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.

    The NDIS can be really confusing. Don’t be afraid to ask us any questions and be prepared to speak up during your Plan meeting. There’s no such thing as a dumb question.

Let us help you to navigate the NDIS and avoid these common NDIS mistakes.
