BEHIND THE VEIL:  NDIS guided planning questions asked at participants’ planning meetings!

This Symposium shares and discusses the  the documentation in the “bank of guided planning questions (and coding options), and shares tips and traps in optimising the rights of participants through their planning meeting. This ensures that the practical support that service providers can provide to participants prepares them and their families and carers to appropriately respond to NDIA guided planning questions in order to maximise NDIA participants’ meaningful contribution to the decisions to be made by NDIA about their NDIS funded reasonable and necessary supports.
