Course Overview

AbilitySeer’s NDIS Reviews and Appeals Workshops are aimed at community sector employees at any level who are engaging with the NDIA on behalf of their clients.

The course takes attendees from preparing and submitting a persuasive Access Request Form, through the Internal Review Process, 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, and Administrative Law Principles.

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.

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

Our very special guest presenter will be Jill Toohey, formerly Senior Member of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal's NDIS Division. Jill's presentation on day 2, will focus on principles of administrative law, and AAT processes, both essential knowledge for anyone seeking review of an NDIS decision in the AAT.In the field of NDIS administrative jurisprudence, there isn't a better mind than Jill's. This is a workshop not to be missed.


The workshop features Tim O’Hare, Lead Trainer, AbilitySeer, an expert in NDIS appeals.

What our attendees say

"The training covered everything I need to know when dealing with reviews and appeals - not so scary now.

"I like the format and how the content was covered from different perspectives. Revisiting the information and reinforcing it meant we could really develop in depth knowledge of the topic. Often I attend training that crams too much in, and AbilitySeer's format and content was refreshing!"

"All areas were covered very well. Knowledge of topic, approach to questions, and use of examples, were notably great."
