Developing a plan

Developing a plan

What do I need to develop my plan?

Once you are registered as an NDIS participant your Early Childhood Early Intervention (ECEI) Coordinator, Local Area Coordinator (LAC) or National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) Planner will contact you to arrange a time for your planning meeting.

At that meeting you will be asked to discuss:
  • what supports you need to reach your goals
  • if you need help coordinating the supports in your plan
  • how you want to manage your plan funds.
The information you provide at this meeting will help work out what you need in your plan. If you take the right information to this meeting you are more likely to get the services and supports you need – so it is very important to be prepared before attending your planning meeting. Your supports will be based on what is reasonable and necessary and must be based on evidence.

What is in this package?

This package contains information about what you need to do to get ready for your NDIS planning meeting. It includes what DAISI knows about how to prepare and any resources from other organisations we think you may find useful.
