Leap in! is excited to launch our latest free ebook designed to help you set and achieve your NDIS goals.

The new ebook, Understanding goals and achieving outcomes with the NDIS: A practical guide for success answers all your goal related questions.

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.

In this ebook you will learn:

  • What goals are
  • Why goals are important
  • The different types of goals
  • How to set goals, along with some great goal-setting tips
  • Where to get help with goal setting
  • How the Leap in! app can help you set and track goals
  • What to do if your goals change.


Goal setting for different stages of life.

You’ll also find information about goal setting for different stages of life and transitions, including:

  • 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.


Put what you learn into practice with the included goal worksheet.

Use the goal worksheet on page 58 to document your goals along with the support and steps to help you get there.

Don’t miss the intro from Leap in! Brand Ambassador Dr Dinesh Palipana OAM and some of the exciting goals he is working towards.
