Day 2, 12:05pm Concurrent Session 4B
Kate Rea – ADACUS
There are many decisions to be made as you approach the NDIS. Decisions about what you would be like to be part of your good life, decisions about what supports you might need to achieve that good life and then, your plan done, decisions about who to approach for supports and services. That’s a lot of decisions!
Some people will need support to have choice and control. Supported decision making (SDM) gives a person the supports they need to be involved, as far as they are able, in decisions that affect them. It can be used to support people to explore good life goals, then make a plan to turn those goals into reality. SDM can support family, friends and supporters to ensure that an NDIS plan truly reflects the goals of the person.
Come along to this session to learn about how you can use a supported decision strategy to make the most from the NDIS.
