The Australian Federation of Disability Organisations (AFDO) recently held an online information session called Getting the Most Out of Your NDIS Plan. This webinar was recorded and is now available to view on AFDO’s YouTube channel.

It was developed for people with disability, their families or carers. Many people have gone through the NDIS access and planning stages and received their NDIS plans but do not know what steps to take next. The topics discussed in the session have been designed to assist with putting a plan into action.

The information session covers:  Understanding a plan; How to find and work with service providers; Options with concerns about a plan; How to prepare for the next plan; and How to use a plan to live a better life in the community.

The presenter is a person with a disability and an NDIS participant. The information is from the point of view of lived experience of disability and independent of any service provider or government organisation.

The session was conducted in two parts and each runs for about 90 minutes. The videos have Auslan interpreting, captioning and a transcript for each video is also available.
