Event description

Description

This free, interactive and interesting workshop is much more than just a “What is the NDIS”, it is designed to demystify the NDIS for families and carers of people with Down syndrome (or other disabilities) in order to get the best out of their future NDIS plans.

By the end of the session, participants will have a good understanding around the aims of the NDIS, the terminology used, what 'reasonable and necessary' actually means, types of supports and plan management as well as goals- all of which is crucial for the outcome of a good plan! We will talk in depth about our 5 step process for pre-planning and talk through scenarios for goals and supports.

Who should attend:

The workshop content will be suitable for anyone supporting a person with a disability to prepare for their NDIS plan. The content and examples given will relate to those with Down syndrome.

The workshop is open to both members and non-members of Down Syndrome Queensland and is free for all attendees.Not suitable for children to attend.

Feedback we have received from previous workshops with similar content:

"Was excellent- the first time I’m leaving a workshop not frustrated” Ipswich attendee (20.5.17)

Down Syndrome Queensland is offering free individual pre-planning sessions to attendees. These are recommended to help families refine their goals and supports in preparation for their planning conversations with the NDIS and can take place at a time and venue to suit. You will have opportunity to indicate your interest at the workshop.
