Event description

Description

Do you want to know what is involved in self-managing your child’s NDIS plan? Have you heard conflicting information about what is involved? Is it easy to make claims? Is the portal simple to navigate? Can I self manage without being out of pocket? What can I do as a self-manager, that I can’t do under agency management? What can I spend the different funding budgets on? How can I make my child’s funds go further by self-managing? How can I have more flexibility around which providers we can use?

What we will cover:

- What is involved in self-managing

- The benefits of using mainstream providers

- The difference between self-management and agency managed

- How much more flexibility you will have

- More about directly employing support workers or therapy assistants

- What records you need to keep and the easy options available

- How to make claims in the portal- and what the portal looks like.

- Differences between self-managing and using a plan manager

This is a practical workshop with lots of information and ideas, including an inside view of the NDIS portal. This workshop would also be valuable for parents considering plan management over Agency Management, and for parents who are preparing for their child’s first plan meeting.

Please be mindful that this workshop is for families who have either had their child's NDIS Planning Meeting and are waiting for the Plan to be approved, or have an approved NDIS Plan in place.

(If you haven't had your NDIS Planning Meeting yet, we recommend you to contact us prior to registering as we might have other NDIS workshops or resources more suitable for you on offer)


Child-Minding not offered during this session/s. Please do not bring your child/children

Your child and a parent/carer are welcome to attend the Saturday Playgroup held here at Plumtree on Saturdays from 10.30am to 12.30pm while the workshop is taking place. Please email Mana (Mana@plumtree.org.au) if this is the case.
