Course Overview


AbilitySeer’s NDIS Reviews and Appeals Workshop is aimed at community, disability, or health sector employees at any level who are engaging with the NDIA on behalf of their clients.


This one day workshop has a practical focus on the process of appealing / reviewing NDIS decisions, for example:

1. Decisions relating to a person’s access to the scheme;

2. Whether or not to fund a certain support or piece of assistive technology;

3. Whether or not to allow a participant to self-manage an NDIS budget.


The course takes attendees from preparing and submitting a persuasive Access Request Form, through the Internal Review Process, accessing legal aid / representation, and into making an application for review to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal, and negotiating and implementing settlements prior to hearings.


It also covers topics such as Client Interviewing, the NDIS Complaints Process, the role of the Commonwealth Ombudsman, Freedom of Information applications, Administrative Law Principles, and basic legal research techniques for non lawyers.


By the end of the course, participants will be better informed, and more confident in supporting their clients to utilise the review and appeals framework as a means of resolving issues which may arise when dealing with the NDIS.


This workshop presents an outstanding opportunity for professional development and networking, and would be extremely beneficial to any NDIS participant, provider, support coordinator, or Community sector employee.


AbilitySeer emphasise supporting people with disability to actively participate in these processes at all stages through out their training courses.
