NDIS PLANNING
for people who are non verbal & have developmental disability

A WORKSHOP FOR FAMILIES

The NDIS is all about having choice and control. However, you might be one of the many families who wonder how your family member who cannot speak can be included in planning for the NDIS.

DDWA are pleased to invite parents and family members to come along to this workshop which will explore how to include people with developmental disability and complex communication needs in their NDIS planning process.

We’ve developed some resources to share with you which explore:

  • why we now believe that everyone can communicate, regardless of their disability

  • how people with complex communication needs can understand and prepare to plan for the NDIS

  • how to explore concepts relating to the NDIS with people who appear to be disinterested or have limited ability to pay attention

  • what supporters can do to help people to understand the NDIS

  • what supporters can do to help people with complex communication needs prepare for their NDIS plan

  • how people with complex communication needs can explore having language relating to the NDIS in their communication systems and devices

  • how to think about setting communication goals

The resources, which will be available online, have been co-designed and trialled successfully with a group of people with complex communication needs.
