It’s really important that you’re well informed about the NDIS and what it can fund so you can make the most of it. Giving participants choice and control is an important focus of the NDIS.
If you feel you could benefit from support to make decisions, talk to your planner about putting assistance with decision-making into your NDIS plan. This will also assist you with your daily planning and budgeting.
Disability Services Consulting outlined the importance of choice and control in an NDIS environment here.
For more information on determining if decision-making support is needed, see the Victorian Office of the Public Advocate’s Decision Making Guide for Adults with Cognitive Impairments or Mental Ill Health.
