1. Get an NDIS plan or change your plan
An allied health worker (e.g. a social worker or OT) can help you get an NDIS plan. If you have an NDIS plan, it may need changes. Your support coordinator can help you. You can ask for a face-to-face meeting with an NDIA planner. They will write down your needs and your goals.
2. Work out your support needs
Work out what you need to stay at home. Your support coordinator or an allied health worker (e.g. a social worker or OT) can help. For example, you might need more support with things like getting ready in the morning, making meals or shopping for food. Your support coordinator will ask the NDIS to pay for things like these. They will help you choose people to work with you on your goals.
3. Get what you need from your first 12-month NDIS plan
Your support coordinator will help you get to know your support people. They can help you ask for an NDIS plan review if your support or home needs changes.
