Get ready for your NDIS plan

Why is the NDIS planning meeting important?

Your NDIS planning meeting is your opportunity to justify any requests for NDIS support.

It’s critical that you prepare for the planning meeting, so you can ensure you end up with the best possible NDIS plan for your situation.

Apply for your plan

How do I apply for an NDIS plan?

To receive the NDIS you will need to apply to the National Disability Insurance Association (NDIA) for an approved NDIS plan.

Your NDIS plan is unique to you and your situation. It outlines your funding for the reasonable and necessary supports you need to achieve your individual goals.

For more information on the NDIS you can contact the NDIA on 1800 800 110.

You can find out more information on how to apply to access the NDIS and register for an NDIS plan here.

When preparing for your NDIS planning meeting it helps to be organised.

Our handy NDIS plan checklist can assist you in getting ready for your NDIS planning meeting with the NDIA. The checklist will help you to identify what your needs are and what is important to you.

In order to prepare for your NDIS planning meeting you will need to gather evidence to support your NDIS plan requests. This evidence should include your most recent (last two years) reports and assessments, such as:

  • Evidence of your own or your child’s disability or developmental delay (eg. letter from your doctor). You can find out more about the types of evidence NDIA requires for your disability here
  • Assessments
  • Reports
  • School learning and/or behavioural plans
  • Disability Support Register Application (if applicable)
  • GP history
  • Any letters of recommendation from school services teams and/or health providers.

Consider who you or your child currently get support from, how they help and what may be the challenges to this kind of support.

  • People - family, friends, carers
  • Groups - childcare, kinder, school, exercise, volunteer
  • Services - doctor, medical, hospital, specialists, council, respite, therapists, day programs.

It is useful to ask yourself: what should I include in my NDIS plan to help me with my every day activities?

Consider current abilities, equipment or people who may help you or your child to complete these activities.

  • Daily living activities - mealtimes, getting dressed, bathing toileting
  • Home - cleaning, shopping, cooking, managing money (if applicable), making appointments (if applicable)
  • Health & Wellbeing
  • Medical - medication management, mental health, therapy
  • Social & community participation - making friends, hanging/going out with friends, activities and groups
  • Relationships - how you/your child understand others, how others understand you/your child, making decisions, addressing behaviours of concern
  • Childcare/schooling/study/work.
